About this Item

Charles de Souance, Prince Charles Lucien Jules Laurent Bonaparte and Emile Blanchard Illustrated plate from Iconographie des Perroquets non Figures dans les Publications de Levaillant et de Bourjot Saint-Hilaire Paris: 1857-58 Hand-colored lithographs by Emile Blanchard and J. Daverne Sheet size: 21 ¾" x 14" This folio of parrots was produced by the French ornithologist Charles de Souancé (1823-1896) with the co-operation of the famous ornithologist Prince Bonaparte and French naturalist Émile Blanchard. The former contributed the descriptions and the latter the illustrations. It is considered the fourth volume of the work Histoire naturelle des perroquets. The first two volumes had been issued by the French naturalist and explorer François Levaillant (1743-1824) between 1801 and 1805, and the third by Alexandre Bourjot St. Hilaire (1801-1886) in 1837-38. This fourth volume was originally intended to be published in 30 parts, but only 12 were produced. Bookseller Inventory # ab0601c
