About this Item

Original blue blind stamped cloth with gilt titles and decoration to the front board. Decorated title page, frontis illus. 14 further hand coloured illustrations. Written as a series of anecdotes with accompanying illustrations to amuse her son, she used stuffed birds as examples for the illustrations. The blue cloth is bright and clean, as is the gilt. A touch of handling only. Internally the book is in sound, but not perfect condition. There is moderate foxing to the verso of the plates, but the front of the plates are cleaner. The pages have a little foxing also. Some of the pates have closed tears to them, and there are a few small nicks. A couple have light creasing to them. Overall they are quite presentable though. Copac shows only two holdings of this work (BL & Oxford). There are no auction records, and at the time of listing, were no other copies available online. There was a second edition of the work in 1862, published by Darton & Hodge [iv], 44 pp. + plates. Bookseller Inventory # 1358
