John Gould Birds of Australia, Black-bellied Storm-Petrel c1848.

by Gould, John

Antique print of John Gould Thalassidroma Melanogaster, Black-bellied Storm Petrel, c1848.

Lovely original hand-coloured lithograph of John Gould Storm Petrels 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 considered the finest Australian bird illustrations ever done. John Gould had an excellent eye for detail, and closely supervised the work of his lithographers.

In good condition, with beautiful hand-colour, we provide a close-up of the bird as our scanner is not large enough to show the full lithograph. The digital image does not do justice to this fine antique print. If you would like further pics, please email us. Full page size, as published, 535 x 370mm (21 x 14.5 inches).
