WILSON, ALEXANDER. American Ornithology; or, The Natural History of the Birds of the United States. New York and Philadelphia: Collins and Harrison Hall 1829. Atlas of plates only (lacks 3 vols., 8vo of text), 4to, 369 x 286mm. (14 1/2 x 11 1/4in.), modern brown half morocco gilt, t.e.g., by the Atelier Bindery, corners worn, a few very minor dust stains. First revised edition, 76 hand-colored engraved plates by A. Lawson, J.G. Warnicke, G. Murray and B. Tanner after Wilson's drawings. The coloring of the plates is vastly superior to that of the first edition. A combination of better pigments and paper stock is the reason for this.
