From An introduction to the literature of vertebrate zoology*: “Not only ‘curious tales about birds’ but altogether a curious and interesting little album of 100 copper-plates, with no text except the legends in Italian furnishing the vulgar names of the subjects. A very rare ornithologic item, not listed in the [British Museum Catalogue (Natural History)].”
This rare item is available to explore online or in person in the reading room.
