You are bidding on a very scarce 1891 copy of 'The Hummingbirds' bound in ORIGINAL trade sized softcover wraps.  This is the definitive study of hummingbirds by Robert Ridgway, published as a section from “Report of the National Museum” in 1890.  This is considered a groundbreaking work in ornithology.   The ONLY 1891 copy for sale anywhere I could find. 

 

The book features 46 black and white plates like the ones shown in photos along with various other illustrations.  Please note that as a seperate section from a larger report of the national museum, this book is numbered from page 253-383 as originally published.  It is a complete first printing of this book!  

 

BOOK CONDTION:  The book is in solid VG condition with a single closed tear to the cover as shown in photo.  The Binding is tight, in exceptional condition and very readable.  Quite amazing that a larger paperback would even survives some 115 years!
