3rd edition. The first edition of 1841 was unillustrated. This edition, published posthumously, was illustrated under the supervision of Louis Agassiz. The introduction by Charles L. Flint provides a detailed acknowledgement of the various artists involved, the drawings for the eight steel plates were made by Antoine Sonrel and those for the many wood-cuts by Sonrel and J. Burckhardt. The engraving and colouring of the steel plates was carried out by John H. Richard and the engraving on wood by Henry Marsh. This ground breaking work is considered a classic of early American zoological literature.
