A print from a scarce set issued in Paris during the latter half of the nineteenth century. No mention of this rare periodical is in the standard references. Editors of the Martin Catalogue (Vol.V, #1758) believe that this series ceased publication after the second series was issued; however, in this grouping, there are a few prints from the third and fourth series. Some of the finest bird illustrators, such as Werner, Huet, Oudart, Keulemans and others, contributed to this publication. The prints are beautifully lithographed and hand tinted with vibrant colors.
