Third Edition

L Upcott Gill 170 Strand W.C 

Rare antique edition of the Canary book, dated 1893. Very good condition for its age. Featuring beautiful coloured illustrations. As expected for a book of this vintage, there is some minimal water marks scuffs and mottling, but no loose pages and a very interesting official correction on an errate slip(see photos). Lovely colour plates. Fascinating and unusual item, a must have for antique collectors and bird watchers alike.
