John Gould Australian Large-billed Plover, Esacus Magnirostris antique print c1848

by Gould, John

John Gould Plover antique print of Australian Stone Plover or Thick-kneed Curlew.

Wonderful hand-coloured lithograph of John Gould Australian Plovers by Henry Constantine Richter for Gould's 'Birds of Australia', published in London between 1840 and 1848. John Gould was known as 'The Bird Man'. He employed the finest lithographers of the day to create large hand-coloured lithographs that are some of the finest bird illustrations ever done. John Gould had an excellent eye for detail, and closely supervised the work of his lithographers.

In good condition, showing the bird's wonderful markings, the digital image does not do justice to this fine antique print. We provide a close-up of the birds. Full size of page, as published, is 370 x 535 mm (14.5 x 21 inches).
