Source of the original : This Heritage Facsimile Edition print is made from an extremely well-preserved early museum original subscription which has been cared for in the hands of this one owner only – Teylers Museum (the oldest museum of the Netherlands).

Museum Quality: The proofs of our prints are carefully compared and corrected with the originals and the final prints always have the original size. As a result, the naked eye is unable to distinguish the originals from the facsimile prints when framed and glazed.

Durability: To ensure the durability, our facsimiles are printed on acid-free white-edged paper with archive inks. Each facsimile has it all: every incredibly fine line detail of every lithographic plate or engraving; every delicate brushstroke of every original.

About the Original: 

Jean Théodore Descourtilz was a French doctor, artist and ornithologist whose love affair with the wilds of Brazil led to his premature death of a tropical illness. Descourtilz’ ornithological depictions are highly distinctive and exceptionally beautiful. According to the Sotheby's catalog, there were only four copies known, two of which had the complete complement of 60 plates.

This is amongst the most beautiful of bird books. Heritage Editions BV is proud to introduce a Fine Art Facsimile Edition of the complete Descourtilz ‘Oiseaux brillians de Brésil” with all 60 plates. The Heritage Editions , is the only authentic facsimile of the work of Descourtilz. They are taken from the original copies held in the libraries of Teylers Museum (Netherlands). These facsimiles are absolutely faithful to the original copies, being of the same size, and virtually indistinguishable from the originals. Heritage Editions attaches great importance to the materials resistance to ageing, so that both value and durability of our edition may be considered as virtually unlimited. The paper we use is 268 g/m mat archival acid-free art paper. The printing is so accurate that from behind glass, the naked eye is unable to distinguish the original from the facsimile. . Each facsimile has it all: every incredibly fine line detail of every lithographic plate; every delicate watercolor brushstroke of every original.

Descourtilz's first ornithological book, Oiseaux brillans du Brésil (Paris, ca.1834]) is even more attractive and much rarer than his more known book: “Ornithologie brésilliene; ou, Histoire des oiseaux du Brésil remarquables par leur plumage, leur chant, ou leurs habitudes”. This first book is illustrated with 60 folio hand-colored lithographs instead of chromolithographs as in his second book and was produced in France. Most plates depict a single species. There are almost certainly less than 10 complete, or nearly complete copies left.
