These colorful Bird prints are from an 1886 children's natural history series published in
the United States. It features rich chromolithograph colors and accurate
representations of the birds portrayed in natural settings. The preface to the
series comments "The pictures have been made its leading feature. While it
makes no pretensions as a text-book, it nevertheless contains a series of life-like
pictures of the animal world, that compare favorably in accuracy of detail, with those of
a carefully prepared scientific work."
