Catalogue of Sotheby's of London sale on 1 February 1984, which included Audubon plates as well as five major atlases. Corners bumped and creased. Perhaps the finest collection of its kind offered for sale since the War (WWII), it is generally distinguished by the criteria employed in its formation: namely, to obtain the finest copies available of some of the greatest colour-plate books ever produced, which would be virtually impossible to assemble today.
