About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Abyssinian Birds and Mammals by Louis Agassiz Fuertes.

Description:

A classic collection of fine art quality color lithographs from the paintings of the leading American painter of birds at he height of his power and just before his untimely death. The portfolio, enclosed in beautiful dark burgundy boards (in Fine condition), consists of 32 lithographs in fine condition and the information and sizes are printed on the back of the thick stock. A couple of the backs have vague light spots of burgundy from rear inside board. There are some traces of very light soiling on some of the backs. These prints are all removable and suitable for framing. Each one is dated by the artist while on the Abyssinian Expedition. The text, by Wilfred H. Osgood, curator of zoology, is also fine. In addition, there are some long bookmarks of 4 bird paintings and an Erratum, correcting information on the back of Plate 4. The covers have the slightest corner wear on 2 of them (out of 8) otherwise they are Very Fine and belie their age. The original dust sleeve is also in a Near Fine condition with some light corner rubbing. Bookseller Inventory # 000386
