"Containing figures and descriptions of every species, an account of their habits and localities, hints on preserving and arranging, etc.; the names and descriptions of all the varieties and synoptical tables showing the differences of species hard to identify." This is a detailed description of species and sub-species, taxonomically arranged, with detailed notes on identification. Good hand-coloured plates. Still useful and a classic in its genre.
