Souancé's Perroquets is a fine sequel to the works of Levaillant and Bourjot Saint-Hilaire. Together these three works constitute the definitive study of parrots in France. The change of printer after the plates I-XV, resulted in the later plates having the branches uncoloured.

First edition; large folio; 48 hand-coloured, lithographed plates (last plate is misnumbered LXXIX) with descriptive text. The first 15 plates by Emile Théophile Blanchard (1795-1864) have both the birds and the branches coloured, while the branches are left uncoloured in the remaining plates by J. Daverne (? -1860); modern black half morocco gilt slight tear to margin plate 14, spotting, browning and toning to many of the plates as usual with this book due to the slightly inferior paper stock used, but withal a very good example of this work; housed in modern black box.

Anker 479; Fine Bird Books 108; Jackson 161, 217; McGill/Wood 578; Nissen IVB, 887; Zimmer 598.
