Studer's Popular Ornithology: The Birds of North
Item Details
Description
Author: Studer, [Jacob Henry] and [Alfred] Brehm
Two Volumes. Illustrated by Theodore Jasper with 119 color lithographed plates in Vol. I, and 41 duotone lithographed plates in Vol. II. 14¼x11½, period full brown morocco, titles in gilt, all edges gilt.
