    Ridgway, Robert:  Color Standards and Color Nomenclature.  Washington, D.C.: Published by the author, 1912. Second Revised and Expanded Edition. Very good+ in its original dark green cloth covered boards with gilt text on the front board with the gilt text on the spine which is worn but clearly visible. The cloth at the head and heel of the spine is lightly rubbed as is the cloth at the tips of the boards. The hinges remain strong as the original binding used cloth hinges. Without a dust jacket, probably as issued. This is the original publication with all of the carefully created color swatches which can not be accurately digitized in the print-on-demand versions so prevalent. 44 pages of text followed by 53 plates of color swatches containing 1,115 named colors. Each plate is protected by a tissue guard. The errata slip which explains plates XXII and XXIV is missing from this copy. Twenty years in the making, this book represents a seminal achievement in the advancement of color identification for use in ornithology and botany. Ridgway (1850-1929) was a botanist and an ornithologist, a founder of the American Ornithologists' Union and curator of birds in the United States Museum (Smithsonian) from 1880 to 1915. This edition greatly expands and corrects the first edition of the title which was released in 1886. Hand stenciling of the plates for the first edition lead to "considerable variation in different copies of the book." (p. 13) This volume is a very scarce and an important work in the areas of ornithology, botany and color theory.
