Gould’s Hummingbirds: A Book of Postcards
John Gould (il)
John Gould (1804-1881), was a talented English naturalist. At age 20, he was appointed “curator and preserver” (taxidermist) to the Zoological Society of London. Before he was 30, Gould had begun to publish extraordinarily beautiful collections of hand-tinted ornithological studies. His name was soon as well known in Europe as was Audubon’s in America, but Gould proved to be both more prolific -- eventually publishing 2,999 magnificent illustrations of birds -- and more universal, capitalizing on his affiliation with the Zoological Society to capture their images all over the world. This book of oversize full-color postcards presents 30 reproductions from Gould’s masterpiece, “A Monograph of the Trochilidae, or Family of Humming-birds” (1849-1861).
