Product Details

Facsimile reprint of a work first published in London in 1832. Forty-two color plates without descriptive text. Folio (14x21) bound in red half leather over maroon boards. Number 141 of an edition limited to 530 copies. Includes an illustrated essay by Brian Reade, 15 pp. Edward Lear (1812-1888) was a brilliant artist, but devoted only his early creative years to painting birds. His monograph of the parrots reflects his artistic talent and remains one of the most prized illustrated works of the 19th century.
