(Zimmer, p. 360-361) describes the work: "A series of large, beautifully drawn and colored plates of the eggs of Palaearctic birds, showing series and variations in greater or less number. The text, in German and English, gives name and synonymy, and details of nidification in concise form for each species, with full data for each egg or clutch shown. The work was interrupted in 1913, and has never been resumed." The original prospectus advertising the work is laid in at the beginning of volume 1. See also Wood, p. 422.
