RECENT ARRIVALS


The Animal Kingdom

By CUVIER, BARON

London: Whittaker, Treacher, 1829. Comprising volumes VI, VII, VIII of the entire set, but complete within itself with all three volumes dealing with ornithology. Publisher’s cloth; some minor occasional spotting; a very good set. With 144 plates, nearly all hand-colored. One plate (the “Black-headed Chatterer”) has been replaced by an accomplished replica (almost certainly contemporary) watercolor, captioned in pencil.

$1500.00

An Album Entitled New Zealand Firns [sic]

By ANONYMOUS

Undated, but likely mid 19th-century, consisting of a clothbound album, titled on the front cover in gilt, with 36 actual dried ferns mounted on leaves. Most are identified and their locations noted in ink at the bottom; each has a tissue guard. In good condition only due to waterstaining, which has caused a few of of the tissue guards to stick to the leaves, and there is occasional deterioration of the samples.
