 John Gould
Birds of New Guinea and the adjacent Papuan Islands 1875

John Gould (1804-1871) was Britain's most prolific and most popular author of bird books.  He has been described as "the greatest figure in bird illustration after Audubon." Gould created a formidable catalog: seventeen separate works comprising a total of over 2500 color plates.  The Birds of New Guinea and the adjacent Papuan Islands was produced from 1875-1888 and was the last large-scale work attributed to Gould.  The work was completed after Gould's death by R. Bowdler Sharpe; it was illusttated by John Gould and W. Hart and comprised 5 volumes in folio size with 300 hand colored lithographed plates.
