Bird illustration has been of interest since the Egyptian tomb painters included wildfowl to sustain the dead on their journey into the world beyond. It's one of the best art books I've ever seen, and will work perfectly both as a birthday gift or a coffee table book for you own humble self. The author admits that the book is "a pictorial introduction" rather than a "comprehensive survey", but I think its comprehensive enough for the general reader.

Bird illustration has been of interest since the Egyptian tomb painters included wildfowl to sustain the dead on their journey into the world beyond. Commentary in this book takes the form of a leisurely stroll through sites along the Nile Valley, Pompeii, medieval Europe and Baroque aviaries, stopping along the way to admire the birds portrayed by the most accomplished artists and ornithologists of their time. Including over 175 representations, all the plates in this work are reproduced in their original colors, and many of them are from specialized galleries and libraries otherwise inaccessible to a wide public.
Beautiful illustrations. My grandson used this book for painting and also learned about the birds.
This beautifully illustrated book is appropriately subtitled "A visual tribute to the lives and achievements of the classic bird illustrators". The initial drawings weren't primarily ornithological intentioned and started as far back as Egyptian tomb art (with a painting of a retriever cat leaping at a bird). The chapter on illuminated bestiaries of medieval times included a detail from Raphael's tapestry for the Sistine chapel of Rome. Coming into the 1600's we see the start of engraving for Ornithological purposes with highlight being Ray and Willughby's Ornithologiae libri tres. Coming into America are pictured Flamingo's by John White and Mark Catesby, the botanist who was one of the first to include backgrounds with bird drawing. From Audubon's Birds of America, are beautiful two-page printings of the bald eagle and mallard. Perhaps some of the highlights of the book are prints from John Gould's work: with over 3100 hand-colored Lithographics in 43 volumes, there were plenty to choose from but the pair of Australian Rosella's lithographed by H.C. Richter are remarkable. This book presents a good visual introduction to the ornithological artists, up through the beginning of the 1900's. Perhaps the book does not go into enough detail about the producing techniques, and the impact of the invention of lithography. The book concludes with "the Twentieth Century" highlighting the work of Charles Frederick Tunnicliffe and his importance to British Ornithology. Perhaps in the United States, Roger Tory Peterson could have been included. If you look online for the Hill Collection at Cornell University you will also see some fine examples from these ornithological illustrators.
This is a wonderful book. As an illustrator myself, it's great to stroll through History and learn about the birds as well as the times from which they come. Very nice indeed.
Will be using this book for crafts. It is so cool.
