"There appears to be some uncertainty as to the actual publication of the final 10 sheets without plates [Pt. II]. These were written by Gould but edited by Sharpe ... The remaining pages may have been sold by the printer without authority."--Cf. Catalogue of the Edward E. Ayer Ornithological Library. Chicago, 1926. p. 263.

"The illustrations are principally taken from the author's works on 'Birds of Asia;' 'Australia,' and 'New Guinea.'"

Each plate accompanied by leaf with descriptive letterpress.

Plates signed J. Gould & W. Hart (or, H.C. Richter) del et lith; Walter Imp.

Plates are hand-colored.
