London: John C. Nimmo, 1896. Fourth edition. Vol I: xix, (i), 178; Vol II: viii, 155; Vol III: xi, (i), 207: 'with two hundred and forty-eight plates, chiefly coloured by hand' - all present except that of the Cranes in Vol III: not all show nests. Contents pages to Vol III have been carelessly opened, and five edge tears elsewhere have been made good. One or two small soil marks noticed, but contents otherwise very clean. Firm, restored set, with original khaki endpapers and in the original khaki textured cloth, ruled in blind, with a vignette of nest and eggs in gilt on the upper board and in blind on the lower, spine ruled and titled in gilt. A few small patches of discolouration, chiefly to upper joint of Vol III, otherwise bindings clean and bright. Very Good+.
