Zoology of New Holland Plate 3
Considering neither illustrator nor zoologist had ever visited Australia – working only from pickled specimens – their illustrations are remarkably accurate. The ground parrot is one of the finest illustrations from the first book ever to be published on Australian fauna.
This exclusive rare print sourced from Museums Victoria's own collection features bookplate 3 from Zoology of New Holland by George Shaw (1794.)
Printed with Epson UltraChrome® HDX all-pigment aqueous ink for accurate colour with an enhanced gamut, Dmax and image durability.
All prints are printed on Ilford Galerie Textured Cotton Rag paper, a leading paper stock in professional fine art printing. This mould made, 100% cotton rag paper has been crafted specifically to meet the needs of fine art photographers who want the confidence that the media they use will deliver accurate and dynamic results time after time.
