Zoology of New Holland Plate 3 Postcard
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 postcard features bookplate 3 from Zoology of New Holland by George Shaw (1794), sourced from Museums Victoria's own collection of rare books. A miniature version of our exclusive print, this postcard makes a great missive, decoration or memento.
