    In a superb Italian edition, this is the celebrated Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux, written by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon (1707-1788), with hand-coloured engravings by Francois- Nicolas Martinet (1725-1804), and published in Paris between 1770 and 1786. It was the most comprehensive ornithological work in France at that time. For this edition, the text (in Italian) has been selected by Stephane Schmitt, and all 1008 of Martinet's finely detailed engravings have been carefully reproduced. Slip-cased.
