Thomas Gentry's
Nests and Eggs of Birds of the United States


From Thomas G. Gentry's Nests and Eggs of Birds of the United States. Philadelphia: J.A. Wagenseller, 1882. Quarto. Chromolithographs. Full margins. Very good condition.

A bright group of charming prints showing the nests and eggs of the birds of the United States. In response to the general public interest in natural history during the latter part of the nineteenth century, Gentry, a member of the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Science, provided a different perspective on the birds, showing them in lifelike situations in or near their nests. This provided an interesting addition to the viewer's understanding of the natural world, as well as a delight for the eyes.
