Partridge prints by John Gould


John Gould John Gould. A Monograph of the Odontophorinæ, or Partridges of America. London: Richard & John E. Taylor, 1850. All images approximately 11 x 18. Lithographs. Full original hand color. All in very good condition excepted as noted.

John Gould (1804-1881) was one of the most respected and prolific ornithologists of all time. Such is his fame that he is often referred to as the "Bird Man." As a taxidermist, traveler and accomplished artist he created life-like and detailed images of birds from all over the world. This work on American partridges was comprised of thirty two plates all depicting mating pairs. It was Gould's first work on game birds. For their realism and vibrant hand-coloring, these prints are some of the most beautiful bird prints ever produced.
