From the moment they were introduced to the European mind in the early sixteenth century, their unique beauty was recognised and commemorated in the first name that they were given - birds so beautiful must be birds from paradise. In this unique exploration of a truly awe-inspiring family of birds which to this day is still shrouded in mystery, David Attenborough and Errol Fuller trace the natural history of these enigmatic birds through their depiction in western works of art throughout the centuries, featuring beautiful illustrations by such luminary artists as Jacques Barraband, William Hart, John Gould, Rubens and Breughel, to name but a few. Experienced ornithologists and general nature and art enthusiasts alike will delight in this journey of discovery of the world's most beautiful and mysterious birds. Quantity Available: 1.

Feather and Brush: Collector's Edition: Three Centuries of Australian Bird Art (Limited Edition. Number 211 of 375 copies. Signed by Penny Olsen.)
Olsen, Penny,
ISBN: 9780643065482
CSIRO Publishing, Melbourne, 2001. First Edition
 Hardcover (in Slipcase) Hardcover (in Slipcase). New Book/New. First Edition. Signed by Author. Special Limited Edition including special binding by publisher. Size: 4to Quarto. 227 pages. This book is available and will be shipped within two business days. All items are tracked and details are available on request. . This volume traces the 300-year history of bird art in Australia, from the crudely illustrated records of the earliest European voyages of discovery to the diversity of artwork available at the start of the 21st century. It is a history inseparable from the development of Australian ornithology. Against a background of establishment of the country itself, naval draftsmen, convicts, officers, settlers, naturalists, artists and scientists alike contributed both to the art and to science. Driven by the excitement of discovery and description of new and exotic birds, the illustration of Australian birds flourished in the late 18th and 19th centuries, then fell into neglect. In recent decades, increasing interest in the environment has led to a revitalization of the art. A wealth of contemporary Australian artists has tuned their attention to birds and never before has wildlife illustration been so varied and accessible. There are over 250 images representing 94 artists in the book. Some are well-known, others are published for the first time. All have been selected for their merit, be it ornithological, historical or artistic. The book links the greats of yesterday - including Ferdinand Bauer, Edward Lear, George Raper, John Lewin, the Goulds and the mysterious Port Jackson Painter - with some of the finest wildlife artists working in Australia today, many with an intimate knowledge of the birds in the field.

Dust Jacket is in very good condition, without tears or chips or other damage. This book is available and ready to be shipped.. Kindred Spirits is the story of a botanical correspondence. Two remarkable women were drawn together in mid-career through the medium of botany, and through their shared love of plants and the natural world. Jean Galbraith, the noted botanist, naturalist and writer, came into contact with Joan Law-Smith when she taught Joan botany to help her realise her long-held dream of becoming a botanical artist. Lessons, letters and drawings were posted back and forth between Jean's home in Gippsland and the grazing property where Joan lived in Victoria's Western District. This correspondence, evoking a gentle, more leisurely era, became the basis for a lasting friendship. Jean and Joan found that despite their vastly different lives and backgrounds they were, indeed, kindred spirits. Illustrator: Joan Law-Smith. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Leonardo
Kemp, Martin,

Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. No foxing in this copy. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. ?It has library stamps and markings, but very discreetly on the half-title and title pages. Otherwise unmarked.. A true genius whose talents embraced painting, engineering, anatomy and human flight, Leonardo da Vinci was an extraordinary human being, indeed one of the most intriguing figures in world history. In this biography, Martin Kemp offers a vivid portrait of the Renaissance giant that explores the essential nature of this forever fascinating artist-engineer, both as an individual and as a historical phenomenon, feeding the "the continuing public appetite for Leonardo and his doings" found in The Da Vinci Code. Kemp takes us on an absorbing journey through the life and work of Leonardo, looking first at the historical man, portraying an impressive and cultivated figure, an artist who in truth completed few paintings, rarely satisfied a commission, and yet lived in the style and ended his career with a massive salary. More important, the author examines the ideas underlying Leonardo's investigations of nature, illuminating his vision of the artist-engineer as matching nature itself in his creativity. Kemp argues that Leonardo's apparent diversities reveal a desire to find an inner unity in the functioning of everything in the observable world. For Leonardo, writes Kemp, every act of looking and drawing was an act of analysis, and he used these analyses to re-make and re-interpret his surroundings. Beautifully illustrated with a unique "thumbnail museum" that offers a tour of all Leonardo's paintings, plus 30 additional illustrations and life-size reproductions of pages from his famous notebooks, Leonardo is a powerful portrait of one of the towering geniuses of world history.

Donaldson, Arthur C. Clarke, and Anne McCaffrey.
