Showing 1–16 of 268 results

First issued in 1832, John Gould’s folio, Birds of Europe, contains 448 hand-colored lithographs that depict the avifauna found throughout the European continent. Many of the plates were rendered by Gould’s wife Elizabeth, and by Edward Lear who regularly contributed to Gould’s publications. The antique original lithographs capture the delicacy of the bird’s form and the subtle texture of their plumage in a balanced, concise composition.
