Paris :Chez Mme. Knip :[1838-1843?]


"A noted work, stolen from Temminck, the original author, by Madame Knip, the artist, who suppressed the titles and introductory matter and substituted others of her own"--Zimmer.

"Typographie de Firmin Didot frères."

C.L. Bonaparte's Iconographie des pigeons, non figurés par Mme. Knip (Paris, 1857-1858), can be considered a continuation or supplement to this work.

Each tome has half title.

Engravers include César Macret, Dequevauviller; and Guyard. Plates printed by P. Bineteau and Millevoy.

Errors in paging; the numbers 67-68 are both repeated once in the second tome.

Issued in 15 livraisons.

Plates printed in color, and finished with hand-coloring.

Temminck republished the text from t. 1 in his Histoire naturelle générale des pigeons et des gallinacés, 1813-1815.

The first tome is a reprint, with alterations, of the same work of 1809. The second tome, with text by Prévost, can stand as an entirely separate work.

The inclusive dates are from Coues (Bull. U.S. Geol. Geog. Surv. terr. 5 (1), p. 794-796, 1878), after Engelmann.

The text of t. 2 was written by Florent Prévost.

There are gaps in the pagination for each tome, as issued. See Nissen and Zimmer for details.

Tome 1 is the second edition.
