Cypsellus Melba, John Gould Alpine Swift, Birds of Great Britain c1865.

by Gould, John

The Alpine Swift flies a vast distance, in particular when it flies each summer from Africa to Europe, where it often nests in church steeples.

Original hand-coloured lithograph by Henry Constantine Richter from the drawing by 'The Bird Man' John Gould for "Birds of Great Britain" published in London between 1862 and 1873. John Gould (1804-1881) employed the best lithographers to create large hand-coloured lithographs that are some of the finest bird illustrations ever done. Gould had an excellent eye for detail, and closely supervised the work of his lithographers.
