    Daniel Giraud Elliot (1835-1915). Two Prints: Paradigalla Carunculata. [and:] Diphyllodes Respublica.

    Two lovely hand-colored lithographs from Elliot's Monograph of the Paradiseidae, or Birds of Paradise (London: 1873). Both are in excellent condition except for some toning around the edges. There is some minor paper loss to tips of corners of Paradigalla Carunculata, and chipping along corner edges of Diphyllodes Respublica. Both have light penciled notations. Both measure 18.5 x 23.5 inches.


    More Information: Daniel Giraud Elliot (1835-1915), a respected American ornithologist who travelled the world amassing a huge collection of bird specimens, was affiliated with several natural history institutions, including Chicago's Field Museum. As a man of independent wealth, no expense was spared in producing his lavish folio works, such as A Monograph of the Phasianidae, or Family of the Pheasants (1870-1872) and A Monograph of the Paradiseidae, or Birds of Paradise (1873). Elliot supplied the text and commissioned acclaimed bird artists Josef Wolf and Joseph Smit to render the rich and "poetical" illustrations.
