Description:
Edinburgh, 1833. Very good condition. With the text page explaining "The discovery of this splendid species is due to our great navigator Captain Cook ... Captain Cook made the following observations, when mentioning this beautiful species. "There are also Humming-Birds, which yet seem to differ from the numerous sorts of this delicate animal already known, unless they be a mere variety of the Trochilus colubris of Linnaeus. These, perhaps, inhabit more to the southward, and spread northward as the season advances; because we saw none at first, though, near the time of our departure the natives brought them to the ships in great numbers" (p72). Handcolored engraving by W.H. Lizars from a drawing by an unknown artist for Sir William Jardine's "Naturalist's Library, The Natural History of Humming-birds". With a Hand colored engraving, 4 1/4 x 7". [with] 2pp text.
