Book Description New York, 1872. No Binding. Condition: Near Fine. Daniel Giraud Elliot (1835-1915) was an American zoologist and a founding member of the American Museum of Natural History in New York and the American Ornithologists’ Union. Elliot was a noted figure in the nineteenth century scientific community for his talent as an artist and his collection of ornithological specimens, thought to be the of the finest in private collection. Elliot traveled throughout Europe and Asia studying and collecting. Through his own financing, Elliot was able to produce numerous comprehensive color-plate books on birds and mammals, without having to concede size or quality. Considered the highest achievement of Elliot’s career, he published two volumes of “A Monograph of the Phasianidae” from 1870-1872. The monograph was issued in six parts and contains over 80 extraordinarily detailed and beautiful plates. The superb plates from Daniel Giraud Elliot’s “A Monograph of the Phasianidae or Family of Pheasants” display the outstanding attention to detail and skill of the author as well as the artists Joseph Wolf, Joseph Smith and John Gerrard Keulemans, whom worked with Elliot on many of the prints. This lithograph, Aeuplocamus Lineatus, measures 18.75” x 23.25”, and is in excellent condition with light foxing and staining. Commonly called Kalij Pheasants, these birds are expertly hand-colored with red faces and eye-masks and black crowns. The male in the foreground has finely detailed black and white spotted patterns with white stripes on its underside and white tail-feathers. The female has intricately patterned feathers in rich shades of brown. Seller Inventory # ad0816e
