About this title


Gathers illustrations from ten books Gould published during the late 1800s, offers profiles of Gould and the team of illustrators he assembled, and describes each of the species pictured

From Library Journal:

Complementing Isabella Tree's great biography The Ruling Passion of John Gould ( LJ 6/1/92) is this fine collection of full-color reproductions of 413 plates chosen from all ten of Gould's major bird books by his great-great-granddaughter. All of the important artists who worked with Gould are well represented. Although most of the plates are reproduced at a smaller scale than the original folio volumes, the quality of the printing is high and does justice to both the scientific and artistic values of the originals. Lambourne has provided capsule biographies of Gould and his collaborators and annotations for each plate. Recommended for most art and ornithology collections.
