The writing corrected, & embellish'd, by the Rev.d Dr. Dupree'', a series of 114 bird prints, which was published by subscription in 38 parts between 1791 until 1796. The plates, after drawings by Lord, showed the birds as close to actual size as possible.

This collection includes six hawks, two owls, a woodpecker, magpie, goldfinch and plover.
