George Shaw

Parrot Rare Book Print - A2


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.)
