Wilson's American Ornithology was an outstanding contribution to the
world of ornithology as the first work on American birds, printed in America.
After Wilson's death, this work was extended by Prince Charles Lucien Bonaparte
of France, with 27 hand-colored plates drawn by Titian Ramsey Peale, Alexander
Rider, and one plate originally drawn by John James Audubon and apparently
modified by Rider. After publication of Bonaparte's work, the work of Wilson and
Bonaparte was considered incomplete without the other.
In 1871edition of American Ornithology on high quality paper and folio
size with superior hand coloring was the only edition to include the additional
Bonaparte images. The Bonaparte plates were stone lithographs instead of copper
plate engravings, thus these prints lack plate marks. These prints make an
interesting addition to the Wilson plates for the collector.
