Vienna, Adolph W. Kunast, 1887

Spectacular monograph on grouse. Rare. A fine series of plates from an important monograph on the grouse and its hybrids. Mützel, an animal painter born and trained in Berlin, was perhaps best known for his work for his work on A. E. Brehm's Illustriertes Tierleben, but the present work is undoubtedly his masterpiece. The plates were drawn on stone by Mützel from his own drawings, printed in Berlin and then, according to Nissen, hand-coloured by M.Schneider.

First edition. Plate volume only, large landscape folio (49 x 66 cm), printed title-page, 17 hand-coloured lithographed plates by G. Mützel, heightened with gum arabic, unbound as issued in original half cloth portfolio (worn), plates clean and fresh.

Cf. Anker 335; Ayer/Zimmer 431; Fine Bird Books p121; Nissen IVB 625; Wood 461.
