Birds.- Sharpe (Richard Bowdler) Scientific Results of the Second Yarkand Mission: Aves, 24 hand-coloured lithograph plates by J.G. Keulemans, W. Hart and J. Smit, without the folding map, title lightly foxed, original printed upper wrapper bound in, modern cloth, [Fine Bird Books p.107; Nissen IVB 861], 4to, 1891. ⁂ In 1873, the second Yarkand mission, under Sir Douglas Forsyth, was sent by the Viceroy of India, Lord Northbrook, to the court of Yakub Beg, ruler of Kashgaria. Ferdinand Stoliczka, the mission's geologist and naturalist, died on the return journey but his collections and notes were edited by various scientists to form the complete 14-part report, issued between 1874 and 1891. The ornithological section was edited by Richard Bowdler Sharpe.
