A Monograph of the Trochilidae (Family of Hummingbirds)
Gould published his own books, producing over forty folio volumes and illustrating over 3000 species of birds and animals. Of these, the best known prints are from his unparalleled Monograph on Hummingbirds. The brilliant coloring is highlighted with gold and transparent luster. Most of the birds appear in charming groups of two and three, surrounded by foliage and landscapes. All the birds are drawn to scale and are anatomically correct to the smallest detail. (Hand-colored lithographs, finished in gold and gum arabic. Drawings by Gould, William Hart, Henry Constantine Richter, and lithographed by the artists. Printed by Hullmandel and Walter, or Walter and Cohn. Coloring by George Bayfield. Text, after Gould's death in 1881, completed by Bowdler Sharpe.)
