Prints » John Gould » Birds of Great Britain

Birds of Great Britain (1862-73) was Gould's pride and joy. In it he fully developed his aesthetic style, and he also introduced nests and young on a large scale (this was his justification for repeating may of the birds previously seen in the Birds of Europe). He anticipated that it would be popular, so produced 750 copies of the work, and he certainly judged his market correctly. These beautifully delineated images are still deservedly popular.
