Birds of Ireland
Blackstaff Press, Dundonald 1983 - 113 pages. 43 x 60 cm. Limited edition 166 of 250, signed by Editor and Designer. 40 mounted color plates reproducing the original watercolour paintings originally discovered in 1976 by the Editor in the recesses of the Ulster Museum, Belfast. Bound for over a century in a flat box, the original 170 watercolours measuring 24 1/2 x 30 inches were painted on white wove paper over pencil outlines. Besides the remarkable plates, Martyn Anglesea describes the history of Ornithological painting, it's place in history, as well as the little known, until now, history of Parker and his extended family. Anglesea states, "Parker's paintings are quite unique as a contribution to nineteenth-century Irish Ornithology and with their Irish topographical backgrounds, for a collection of great value." Including notes on plates and a complete list of original watercolours. Raised bands, black leather spine labels printed in gilt. Three quarter brown calf, marbled boards, raised bands decorated in gilt. Fine in fine matching marbled slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
