A FINE LARGE COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION, coloured issue, of the
chief ornithological work by Bolton. The book elaborates on Eleazar
Albin's
The Natural History of English Song Birds (1737),
which focused mainly on how to catch and train singing birds
suitable to be kept in cages. Bolton's work is based on his
observations of the birds in their natural habitats, as well as
detailed inspection of the individual birds he drew. According to
Coues, "This is perhaps the most ornate, or luxurious, work on
British Song Birds of the last century, and it ought to remain in
some sort a 'standard' treatise." A loosely-inserted typed note
provides evidence that the pencil annotations in this copy are by
the author himself, a close friend of the Adam family; the note
also gives details of the Adam family history. Nissen
IVB 115; Ellis/Mengel 308 ("rather rare");
