Description:

The Naturalist's Library

Edited by Sir William Jardine

Volume XIII
Ornithology
Flycatchers

by

W. Swainson

W. H. Lizars, Edinburgh, First Edition, later printing, no date but circa 1850 or a bit earlier. (The original edition was in 1838, the 2nd edition appeared in 1854).
Red embossed cloth hard covers with gilt titles and decoration, gilt top edges, 256 pages, illustrated hand-colored title page, frontispiece tissue-protected portrait of Haller, 31 tissue-protected plates, partially hand-colored.

Includes memoir of Baron Haller.


Sir William Jardine, 7th Baronet of Applegirth, Dumfriesshire (23 February 1800, Edinburgh to 21 November 1874, Sandown, Isle of Wight) was a Scottish naturalist.

Jardine made natural history available to all levels of Victorian society by editing and issuing the hugely popular forty volumes of The Naturalist's Library (1833-1843). The series was divided into four main sections: Ornithology (14 volumes), Mammalia (13 volumes), Entomology (7 volumes), and Ichthyology (6 volumes); each prepared by a leading naturalist. James Duncan wrote the insect volumes. The artists responsible for the illustrations included Edward Lear. The work was published in Edinburgh by W. H. Lizars. The frontispiece is a portrait of Latreille

Jardine's other publications included an edition of Gilbert White's Natural History of Selborne which re-established White's reputation, Illustrations of Ornithology (1825–43), and an affordable edition of Alexander Wilson's Birds of America.

Jardine was the author of a number of bird species, alone or in conjunction with his friend Prideaux John Selby.


CONDITION: Good. (Covers have shelfwear, moderate wear at spine ends and corners. All text and plates are complete with no tears. A few pages are a bit proud (i.e. stick out a few millimeters) and one text pages has a very narrow discolored fore margin. Otherwise, all text pages and plates are intact and clean.)

Shipping and Payment Information

 



Shipping :


DOMESTIC

Domestic Media Mail shipping, including Delivery Confirmation and Insurance, is standard. This applies to any address in the US and Puerto Rico, as well as to APO addresses.

Media Mail, available only for domestic shipping, is trucked to its destination, and shipped by boat to Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, On the average it takes 3 to 10 days to arrive, depending on the distance and the vagaries of the US Postal Service.

Shipments to Alaska, Hawaii, APO and other off-shore addresses take longer to arrive.

During the pre-Christmas season, Media Mail is subject to delays.

When filling out the Ebay Detailed Seller Ratings, please keep in mind that the sometime slow arrival is due to the performance of the Postal Service and not to any tardiness on the part of the seller.


For expedited domestic mailing, Priority Mail shipping can be arranged at an additional cost. For most books, we charge between two and nine dollars for this service, including delivery confirmation and insurance. For heavy sets or high-value books, the charge may be higher.

 


INTERNATIONAL


For international shipping, we urge bidders to request quotes of shipping costs before bidding.

We will also specify international shipping options and prices after the conclusion of the auction. We will try to provide a range of options but buyers should be aware that all shipments are via air mail and shipping of heavy books can be expensive.

 


COMBINED SHIPPING


For international transactions, combined shipping of multiple lots can substantially reduce postage. This is especially the case for M-Bag shipments of up to 11 lbs and for multiple volumes that will fit into a single Priority Mail flat rate box. For the above options, the postage rate is fixed independently of the weight.
 


INSURANCE

All of our domestic shipments are fully insured.


 



 



Payment :

No credit cards except through PayPal. Paypal payments should be in US Dollars but Euros are also acceptable if prior agreement is obtained.

As of October 2008, Ebay is imposing the requirement that all payments be made via Paypal. We understand that this requirement may be a problem to some of our customers and we will do our best to accommodate their needs.
