About this Item

Louis Aggasiz Fuertes ranks among the best illustrators in American ornithology and his 106 plates in this massive study richly show why he is held in high esteem. His work here is an effort to update the James DeKay bird volumes of the famous and monumental, 30-volume Natural History of New York (1844). Certainly Eaton's desire to update that classic work was justified, given the changes in knowledge and ecology that had occurred in the 60 years between DeKay's volumes on the birds of New York and 1910. This publication is Memoir 12 of the New York State Museum. The plates are photomechanicals in full color. Large 4to. 2 vols. I: 501 pp., 42 plts. II: 719 pp., 64 plts. Publisher's cloth. Text starting to separate at the rear of vol. II at the point of the last plate; text separation is an endemic problem to this work, for it is printed on heavy, coated stock and the plates are on extra-heavy paper?all of which is "bound" using modern technology with modern sewing. This is a good, solid, used but not abused set. Bookseller Inventory # 2709
