Naturalist's Color Guide.

Publisher: New York: American Museum of Natural History, 1974.
Status: OP
Binding: Paperback.
Condition: Near Fine.

Near fine condition. Ex-library (Withdrawn). Call numbers on spines, library pocket. This is the complete set containing the paperbound Supplement and Part III (1981). Swatches for 182 colors are provided in the ring binder with a mask to aid in color determination. Ridgway's Color Standards and Color Nomenclature published in 1912 contained swatches and names for 1,115 colors and shades; Smithe found that this was too many colors and initially proposed only 86 colors. On the advice of knowledgeable critics, he added 96 colors in 1981. A limited number of copies of the Naturalist's Color Guide were published and the complete set with the additional 96 colors in the binder is scarce.
