"A work on the eggs of the birds of Holland, of unusual merits ... (it) was issued in an edition of 250 copies, 100 of which were printed in English" (Zimmer II, 651). "The tables face the plates to which they belong, the pictures of the eggs being mounted in frames sunk in thin card, thus producing a particularly pleasing effect; when coloured, the figures are reproduced by the three-colour process" (Anker 390). The fine plates depict 667 illustrations of bird-eggs, of which 50 are heliotypes and 617 chromolithographs.
