A monograph of the Trochilidæ, or family of humming-birds by John Gould( Book )

in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alfred Russel Wallace remarked of hummingbirds that they are, as regards the number of distinct kinds collected in a limited area, the most remarkable of all the families of birds. This, combined with their radiant plumages and amazing ability to feed while hovering, fascinated Europeans from the time the first specimens arrived from the New World. Gould was completely captivated, and became an omnivorous collector of hummingbird specimens. His collection numbered in the thousands by the time he commenced work on this monograph, generally considered his masterpiece and one of the greatest of all bird books. Ironically, at the time he created this book he had never seen a living hummingbird (his first was a ruby-throat, seen in Philadelphia in 1857). But with the aid of novel techniques such as painting over gold leaf with transparent watercolors and depicting the birds, often in flight, amid luxuriant tropical flowers he managed to give viewers of his plates a glimpse of his subjects vivid spirit. In fact, one of the most distinctive qualities of the hummingbird's iridescence - the way a male's throat will suddenly flash with brilliance in just the right light - is often captured by Gould's techniques."--abebooks website
