Birds and Animals. McLoughlin, 1920's.

Birds and Animals.

A beautiful big book, with what I would assume are older chromolithos inside, a bit fainter than the birds on the cover. The sepia pictures are very nice, all by the same anonymous artist. This large book is constructed with half folio sheets glued together, rather than folded sheets.

Our Pretty Birds. Homewood Publishing, 1902.

Our Pretty Birds.

An unusually beautiful linen bird book with fine paintings and detailed, labeled drawings and chromos. Both the paintings and the drawings appear to be by a single artist, whose signature I cannot find. The book begins with an alphabet poem of birds A to Z "Zebra Waxbill, whom I don't suppose you've seen." The many English birds are identified. Scarce. Please note: THIS BOOK HAS BEEN SOLD
