London: Bernard Quaritch, [1875]. Folio, 26 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary half morocco, slight wear, lacks rear marbled endpaper, a few spots but the plates scarcely affected.

The Quaritch reissue, from the original copperplates. In a catalogue of 1877 Quaritch described it as ‘a new issue, in which the birds are coloured by an artist, not a dauber, as the original copies were. The birds themselves, in the British Museum, have been taken as copies to insure accuracy and high finish’.
