Item Description: 1894-1900, 1894. 4to. 4 vols. Original green cloth, gilt vignette of antelope to uppers, gilt rules to boards, spines with gilt rules and lettering; pp. xxxv + 220, v + 194, v + 245, v + 242, 100 hand coloured lithographs after J. Smit and J. Wolf, 121 text illustrations; spines a little darkened, repair to one text page in vol I, otherwise very good, plates very clean. First edition. Scarce. This great work on antelopes was originally the project of Sir Victor Brook (1843 - 1891), the father of Viscount Alanbrooke and a serious big game hunter and naturalist. He supervised the production of the beautiful plates by Smit and Wolf but died of pneumonia, aged only 48, before the book could be completed. The writing of the text was taken over by Sclater, then Secretary of the Zoological Society of London, who wrote the main text, and Thomas, curator at the British Museum of Natural History, who provided the scientific descriptions. The result was a triumph both artistically and scientifically: "The book of Antelopes is a timely work and it is matter for congratulation that the colored plates prepared under the supervision of the late Sir Victor Brook more than twenty years ago are finally given to the public accompanied by such authoritative letter press" (Science, New Series, Vol 3, No. 67, April 10 1896, p. 566). The work's value partly resides in its recording of species now lost to us, hence the reviewer's appreciation of its timeliness: "…it is sad to feel that many species are on the road to rapid extinction" (Ibid.).

Item Description: Bernard Quaritch, London, 1869. Imperial quarto. (14 1/2 x 10 7/8 inches). 100 hand-coloured lithographed plates, finished with gum arabic, by Joseph Smit. Contemporary half red morocco over marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in the second and third, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers Provenance: R. J. Balston, F.Z.S. (bookplate) A lovely copy of a noted work on tropical South American ornithology, wonderfully illustrated with hand coloured plates by Joseph Smit. Published in 13 parts between October 1866 and November 1869, the preface states it was originally intended to cover "the many new and rare ornithic forms that have been recently discovered in nearly every part of the world's surface. As it progressed, however, the authors found that it would be more convenient to restrict it to the birds of the Neotropical Region -- that is America south of the United States. No other part of the world can vie with Tropical America in the richness of its avifauna; and nowhere else have so many brilliant discoveries been recently made." ''The authors' original plan was that their work should form a continuation of well-known atlases, such as Buffon and Daubenton. According to the plan, the work was to give figures and descriptions of new and rare birds from all parts of the world; however, the authors soon limited the task to the birds of the Neotropical region" (Anker). "The plates are all by Mr. Smit; they are very beautiful. The whole number of species figured is 104, referring to 51 genera. In most cases, a systematic list of the other American species of the same genus is appended to the final illustration of each, thereby enlarging the scope and greatly increasing the value of the work. Each of the species is systematically treated with synonymy, diagnosis and critical and biographical matter. The authors are the highest authorities in neotropical ornithology and this work is a monument of erudition, industry and artistic excellence" (Coues). "Smit has done an excellent job with these plates, for the lovingly detailed birds stand out sharply against their backgrounds of trees, branches and leaves. It is obvious that Smit enjoyed painting the leaves as well as the birds, for they are beautifully executed" (Jackson, Bird Illustrators: Some Artists in Early Lithography, p.76). This copy with provenance to Richard J. Balston (1839-1916), a fellow of the Zoological Society, a member of the British Ornithologist's Union and author of a monograph on the birds of Kent. Balston was perhaps best known as the head of the firm Messrs. Balston, LTD., the maker for many years of the celebrated Whatman paper.
