The entire 1841 edition, produced in its entirety, and essential excerpts of the first and second issues (1821-1835) are included. The editor, R. Tucker Abbott has added a new list of explanations to plates, with the current nomenclature and modern information about each species." FINE- HARDCOVER, some foxing on end pages.
