About this Item: 1972-1975, 1972. Elephant folio. Orig. full calf binding (bound by P.L. Marsh) as issued. Gilt. With full-page col. plates. Limited editions. Orig. published 1848-1869. NOTE: John Gould was born in England in 1804. He spent his youth working alongside his father at the Royal Gardens in Windsor where he developed skills as a taxidermist. By 1827 he had an appointment at The Zoological Society. The historic 'Birds of Australia' was a thirty year production of which two whole years were spent touring Australia. Between 1838-1840 Gould and his wife Elizabeth who was responsible for producing some 600 drawings for Birds of Australia lived and travelled throughout Australia. Together they created the greatest work on Australian avifauna and perhaps Gould's major ornithological achievement. He was considered the foremost authority on the subject and on numerous occasions during his career made public his concerns about the protection and preservation of many species which even in his day was showing signs of elimination due to excessive shooting. Birds of Australia remains today the most comprehensive work on the subject with few new species being added and sadly two have become extinct and at least twenty others are on the verge of extinction. Fine and complete. Seller Inventory # 234647

About this Item: dated between 4 September 1879 & 23 December, London & Maidstone, 1880. Four single sheets; including two printed receipts from Gould, 13.5 x 21 cm, both completed in manuscript, one with internal revenue stamp and signature of Gould, purchase order from Maidstone Museum, 12.5 x 16 cm, printed in red and completed in manuscript; and a fourth on Gould's letterhead, 20 x 12.5 cm, address printed in blue at head, manuscript date and "with Mr Gould's complts. & thanks" in a secretarial (?) hand. Four interesting pieces of ephemera regarding the sale of Gould's monumental Birds of New Guinea and Birds of Asia to the Maidstone Museum in 1880. Included is a "with compliments" slip on Gould's personal letterhead, and, on one of the receipts, Gould's unsteady signature acknowledging payment; he died only three months later, and both of the works being discussed here were completed by R. Bowdler Sharpe.The four documents track the sale of the two works to Maidstone Museum in Kent, still recognised as a prominent natural history museum, and then curated by the expert on South American birds and keen ornithologist, Edward Bartlett. The first two pieces in this collection are orders payable raised on the banker Drummonds, ordering the two works then in preparation, the Birds of Asia (1850-1883) and the Birds of New Guinea (1875-1888). One of these orders has an inland revenue stamp and record of moneys received, with Gould's shaky signature.The third document is a purchase order from the Borough of Maidstone, dated 11 August 1880, authorising the payment of nine guineas, signed by various local dignitaries.The fourth, which effectively completes the transaction, is on Gould's letterhead, and is evidently the note forwarded to Maidstone, "with Mr Gould's compts. & thanks": this is in a neat and legible hand, and given the nature of the signature of Gould for the receipt of monies on the same day, must be secretarial.John Gould (1804-1881), started out as a London taxidermist, and in 1823 was appointed to the staff of the Zoological Society of London. Gould's career really began with the publication of two works, his Century of Birds from the Himalaya Mountains (1831-1832) and The Birds of Europe (1832-1837). His magnificent Birds of Australia began to be published in London in 1840, less than two years after he had first arrived in Hobart. Gould's work on birds was followed by his equally monumental work on the mammals of Australia.Now reverently known as the 'Bird Man', manuscripts relating to his career have long been assiduously collected. Old folds, some chipping and small tears to edges. Seller Inventory # 3905150

About this Item: published by the Author, London, 1848. Hand-coloured lithograph (510 x 350 mm), with letter-press text. Delicately hand coloured original lithographic plate from Gould's most famous work, Birds of Australia, one of the great natural history publications of all time.Known more commonly today as the Orange Chat, Epthianura Aurifronis was noted by Gould at the time to be of greatest rarity. As both a dedicated ornithologist and entrepreneurial publisher, Gould's lasting contribution to was his lavish series of colour plate folios. Indeed, his biographer Allan McEvey asserts that 'nothing can detract from this gargantuan achievement that ranks highly in the world's ornithology' (John Gould's Contribution to British Art, 1973).Birds of Australia was one of Gould's most successful publishing endeavours. The series of plates was issued in a limited edition of 250 copies, after which the original lithographic stones were effaced to ensure no further copies could be printed. Of these, some 180 copies were sold by subscription, with the remainder offered as splendid bound volumes. Individual plates from the Birds of Australia are now both scarce and eagerly collected.

About this Item: The Author 1840-, London, 1869. Hand-coloured lithograph (510 x 350 mm), with letter-press text. The Ewing's Acanthiza, Acanthiza Ewingii, is a native of Tasmania and was named after the Reverend Thomas James Ewing. This is an original hand coloured lithographic plate from Gould's most famous work, Birds of Australia.John Gould's great contribution to ornithology was his lavish series of colourplate folios and his serious scientific interest in Australian birds. The Literature of Australian Birds by Whittell lists 102 books and scientific papers by Gould on the subject. "What of Gould's own role and his historical place in relation to the ornithology of Australia? Gould's enterprise flourished in the era of extensive collecting of birds and the description of species. There is no doubt that he had a brilliant natural talent for the recognition of new species characters in birds and therefore the science of avian systematics (taxonomy) involved with describing and naming bird species. This he linked with both expertise in taxidermy and an ability to capture the field character of birds in rough sketches? Although many of Gould's systematic placings have not been preserved by modern research, a remarkable number of his names have survived and some of the forms he found puzzling remain so today. Nothing can detract from this gargantuan achievement that ranks highly in the world's ornithology" (McEvey).Birds of Australia is a great tribute to Australia and was one of Gould's most successful projects. "Only 250 copies have been printed, and the drawings have been effaced from stones; of these, 180 were subscribed for, the remaining seventy the author proposes to issue upon the original terms, with the exception, that five or more parts shall be delivered in the course of each year instead of four; the delivery to commence on the 1st of January 1849" (Prospectus).
