    Daniel Giraud Elliot (1835-1915), a respected American ornithologist who travelled the world amassing a huge collection of bird specimens, was affiliated with several natural history institutions, including Chicago's Field Museum. As a man of independent wealth, no expense was spared in producing his lavish folio works, such as A Monograph of the Phasianidae, or Family of the Pheasants (1870-1872) and A Monograph of the Paradiseidae, or Birds of Paradise (1873). Elliot supplied the text and commissioned acclaimed bird artists Josef Wolf and Joseph Smit to render the rich and "poetical" illustrations.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
