Birds of New Guinea (incl. Birds of Paradise)

Birds of New Guinea (incl. Birds of Paradise)

The Birds of New Guinea and the Adjacent Papuan Islands, Gould’s last great work. With only about 250 sets made it is amongst the rarest of all Gould's works and was completed after his death by Richard Bowdler Sharpe, . ‘The halo of romance which for nearly a century has centred round New Guinea and its animals does not get dimmed as time speeds on,indeed it shines more brightly than ever’
, wrote Sharpe in his introduction. The most remarkable species were the birds of paradise which had first become known to Europe in the C17th century when the Spanish ship Vittoria brought a gift of skins (minus their legs) to the king of Spain from a sultan of the Moluccas. Their feathers and plumes were so beautiful that the Spaniards said they must of come from paradise.
