Ornithology was vastly popular in the 19th century and as such it led to the wonderful drawings you will find in this book, and indeed other guides of the time. This version, Birds of Europe was written and published by John Gould. The real joy of this book are the diagrams from Elizabeth Gould and Edward Lear, which to this day look like stunningly accurate depictions. Estimated value for this first edition set of five volumes is £40,000-50,000 at Sotheby's.
