Yellow-legged Spoonbill (Platalea Flavipes)
London: The Author 1840-, 1869. Hand-coloured lithograph (600 x 365 mm.), with letter-press text; very good. An attractive original hand coloured lithograph plate from Gould's most famous work, Birds of Australia. Only 250 sets were produced of Birds of Australia, and are still considered today as one of Gould's most successful projects and a foundation stone of Australian ornithology. The yellow-legged spoonbill was found in large numbers in New South Wales at the time of Gould witting his letterpress, he does note that this was during a 'rainy and luxuriant season which followed the drought experienced in New South Wales in 1839'.
