  • Supersedes the author's earlier work: A nomenclature of colors for naturalists and compendium of useful knowledge for ornithologists. Boston : Little Brown, 1886
  • Twenty-seven colored samples mounted on each plate. "In the present work the possibility of variation between different copies is wholly eliminated ... Each color, for the entire edition, is painted uniformly on large sheets of paper from a single mixture of pigments, these sheets being then cut into small squares which represent the colors on the plates"--Page 13
