Breaking news!

The copy of Illustrations of the Nests and Eggs of the Birds of Ohio that I have been searching for 15 years has surfaced! It was the personal copy of the author of the text for Nests and Eggs, Howard Jones, and contains all the original, artist-signed templates from which the colorists worked to hand -paint the illustrations in the other copies, in addition to one-of-a-kind paintings and hand-written accounts that are unique to this volume.

Its location will be revealed after the institution that acquired it through donation is ready to release the news to the public.
