London : Edward Lloyd, Limited, 1897 A very good set in the original publisher's maroon buckram cloth binding with 48 colour-printed plates as called for. Vol I - sand-grouse, partridges and pheasants 304pp; Vol II - pheasants, megapodes, curassows, hoatzins, bustard-quails - 316pp. The bindings have gilt titles and bands to the spine. The spines have very slight fading and a little wear to top and bottom and edges. The boards are very clean with a little wear to the corners. Internally there are some ragged or missing tissue-guards and a little browning to endpapers. Vol II has some browning to the side edge of the frontispiece. The contents are very clean and without the foxing that frequently affects this series.
