Item Description: 1865. MORRIS, Francis Orpen. A History of British Birds. London: Groombridge and Sons, 1865. Six volumes. Octavo, early 20th-century three-quarter navy morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, all edges gilt. $2500.Early edition of Morris’ popular British ornithology, with 358 vividly hand-colored wood-engravings by Benjamin Fawcett from the drawings of Richard Alington. Handsomely bound by William Matthews.Morris is "best known by his works on natural history, which, although 'popular' rather than scientific, had much literary value" (DNB). First published in monthly parts by Richard Groombridge from 1851-57, this first Bell edition of Morris' Birds was reissued in 1870 from the original color wood blocks made by Benjamin Fawcett. The Birds "early obtained considerable popularity on account of its readability and moderate cost" (Zimmer). "The work deals broadly with individual species, for instance as regards their distribution, occurrence in the British Isles, and habits, the birds themselves and their eggs being also described. The number of species included in the work increased gradually as new species were added to British avifauna" (Anker). This second edition was considered by Morris an improvement over the first, with seven additional plates. The plates were made from original drawings by Richard Alington, transferred to wood, engraved and color-printed by Benjamin Fawcett, whose firm specialized in very fine quality xylographs— a color wood-engraving process. Fawcett is generally considered the "father of color printing," having developed a cost-effective method of cutting several color wood blocks for a given plate (these in two blocks of black and gray), thereby reducing the number additional colors to be painted by hand. First published in monthly parts by Richard Groombridge from 1851-57, this reissue of the first edition precedes the 1870 revised second edition. Zimmer, 443. Nissen 645. Sitwell, 125. See Anker 346. Volumes I and II expertly rebacked with original spines neatly laid down, Volume IV with expert joint repairs. Some volumes with very mild dampstaining to lower margin of some leaves, not affecting plate images or text. Near-fine condition, a very handsome set. Bookseller Inventory # 101863

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Illustrated with 358 full-page engraved, hand-colored plates. 4to. Bound in original contemporary publisher’s ½-leather-backed cloth, gilt decorations on spine, 5 raised bands, all edges marbled. London: Groombridge and Sons, 1851-1857. First Edition. First Issue. 6 volumes. Only the first edition sets were fully hand colored. In later editions the backgrounds were not colored. Morris’s A History of British Birds was first published in monthly parts from June 1850, over a period of 7 years. Each part contained 24 pages of letterpress and 4 hand-colored plates. It was a resounding success. The inspiration for the book came from the renowned English printer, Benjamin Fawcett, who approached Morris to write the text when Morris became Vicar of Nafferton. Morris was a popular writer on natural history in general, and birds in particular. His first book, Guide to an Arrangement of British Birds, was published in1834. His association with Benjamin Fawcett was to have remarkable results, particularly for the study of ornithology. Alexander Francis Lydon, one of Fawcett’s principal engravers, contributed much in technique and design. Morris became an early advocate for conservation and was instrumental in founding the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. Some wear to covers; spine of volume I professionally rebacked, almost unnoticeable; heads of spines on volume II, V and VI slightly chipped; heel of spine of volume IV chipped; some inner hinges split but boards still firmly attached; some minor foxing; first 3 plates of volume V with water marks, not affecting images; o/w plates are clean and bright. A fine example of a rare, classic set. Bookseller Inventory # 6090
