Description

Joseph Wolf & Henry Constantine Richter, 
German 1820-1899 and British 1821-1901- 

Cygnus Ferus (Whooper Swan); from John Gould's 'Birds of Great Britain', 1862-1873; 

hand-coloured lithograph, 33.4 x 51 cm. 

Provenance: 
with Henry Sotheran Ltd, London. 
Anon. sale, Bonhams, Oxford, 11 November 2009, lot 114 (part). 
Private Collection, UK. 

Note: 
Gould worked primarily as a taxidermist, and possessed an in-depth knowledge of ornithology, culminating in the 'Birds of Great Britain', his most successful publication. He also assisted Charles Darwin (1809-1882) in his identification of the specimens he collected in his 1836 'Beagle' voyage to the Galapagos islands, concluding that the birds collected were not different species, but varieties of the same species, a discovery which greatly informed Darwin's theory of natural selection.
