Titre : The Ornithology of Australia. Dedicated by ...
Éditeur : c. 1866
Date d'édition : 1866
Brisbane: Printed for the Author by T.P. Pugh, (circa 1866). Folio. The wrappers are soiled and chipped at edges and on the rear cover of Pt 5 is the List of Subscribers totalling 86 subscribers only. These inaugural six parts contain 33 particularly sharp brightly hand-coloured plates and whilst foxed as is the accompanying letterpress descriptive text, all coloured plates are heightened with gum arabic. In its First Issued state published without a title-page. Probably the rarest of the Australian produced colour plate books. NOTE: The First Edition of this work appeared in 21 parts issed between 1866 and 1870, of which this offering comprises the first 6 parts. Most uncommon in its as issued state with most copies offered being bound. A 2nd edition was issued in 1877 retitled 'Companion to Gould's Handbook', but this, like the 1st edition, met with little success and Diggles, a prominent Brisbane entrepreneur in colonial days, fell on financially hard times.
