1 Lilford, Lord. Illustrated By A. Thorburn and G. E. Lodge Notes on the Birds of Northamptonshire and Neighbourhood. In Two Volumes
London R. H. Porter 1895 First Edition Hardcover Fair 
London: R. H. Porter, 1895. First edition. Worn copy of this two-volume set once belonging to noted ornithologist John Eliot Thayer (1862-1933), as evidenced by his engraved bookplate on the front pastedown of each volume. Illustrated throughout with steel plate engravings plus other engraved vignettes. Light olive green cloth lettered in gilt, top edges gilt, other edges uncut, 352 + 315 pages, folding map at the end of volume II. Covers heavily rubbed at the edges with the bottom inch or so of both volumes having gotten wet, both hinges of volume I and rear hinge of volume II internally cracked, text blocks generally sound. Text pages are clean and unstained (final third of pages in volume II are a little wavy toward the bottom), but the steel plate engravings in both volumes are dampstained about a third of the way up from the bottom (without similar stains on adjacent text pages, so apparently the heavier paper on which the plates were printed had superior wicking ability). Volume II also has some fairly faint dampstaining to the last few page and reverse side of the silk-backed map; stain faintly visible on one edge of map face. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Fair. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Edition.
