Striated Pardalote (Pardalotus Striatus)
London: The Author 1840-, 1869. Hand-coloured lithograph (510 x 350 mm.), with letter-press text; very good. The Striated Pardalote, Pardalotus Striatus is a busy little bird that feeds off insects and frequents the Eucalyptus tree. This is an original hand coloured lithographic plate from Gould's most famous work, Birds of Australia. Birds of Australia is a great tribute to Australia and was one of Gould's most successful projects. 'Only 250 copies have been printed, and the drawings have been effaced from stones; of these, 180 were subscribed for, the remaining seventy the author proposes to issue upon the original terms, with the exception, that five or more parts shall be delivered in the course of each year instead of four; the delivery to commence on the 1st of January 1849' (Prospectus).
