    Description

    Two Original Hand-Colored Plates From Illustrations of the Nests and Eggs of Birds of Ohio.

    Extracted from Howard Jones [text] and Mrs. N. E. (Virginia) Jones [illustrator]. Illustrations of the Nests and Eggs of Birds of Ohio With Text. Circleville, Ohio, 1886. Texted printed by Robert Clarke & Company, Cincinnati; plates printed by The Krebs Lithographing Company, Cincinnati.

    Two beautiful hand-colored plates from the rare work on Ohio birds, considered by many as second only to Audubon, including Plate XII from Volume I, the nest of the Sialia Sialis (Eastern Bluebird), 14 x 16.5 inches and Plate LXVI from Volume II, the nest of Parus Atricapillus (Black-Capped Chickadee), 14 x 16.5 inches. Plate LXVI has puckered slightly along the edges, else each example remains bright and in near fine condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
