Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets – Antique Originals

Showing all 2 results

Illustrated by Jacques Barraband and authored by French naturalist Francois Levaillant, Histoire Naturelle Des Perroquets (1801) represent a high point in the history of ornithological art, and, at the time of its publication, was the world’s best-known monograph on parrots. In his engravings, the birds seem to glow on the paper, giving off an inner vitality that comes from a brilliant use of color, a near-perfect rendering of feathers, and a breathtaking mastery of the printing process.
