Australian Allied Harrier, Circus Assimilis. Hand-coloured lithograph by Henry Constantine Richter after Gould for John Gould's Birds of Australia c1840.

Superb original hand-coloured lithograph of John Gould Australian birds 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.

We provide a close-up of this magnificent bird lithograph. In good condition, with beautiful hand-coloured, the digital image does not do justice to this fine antique print.  Page size is 535 x 370 mm (21 x 14.5 inches), as published.
