[Paris, 1806].

Two plates from 'Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux de Paradis', the masterwork by Barraband, the finest French bird illustrator of his time, who had both scientific accuracy and superb skill as a watercolourist. The combination of some of the world's most colourful and glamorous birds alongside Barraband's skills whilst at the height of his powers makes for outstandingly beautiful studies of these exotic species.

Pair of stipple engravings, printed in colours and finished by hand, with fine, strong colour, framed and glazed, 58 x 39 cm. (22 3/4 x 15 1/4 in).
