Illustrations of the Family of Psittacidae or ParrotsLEAR, Edward
This is the very high quality 1978 facsimile of Lear’s seminal work, which was illustrated when he was just 19 years of age. It is one of life’s little ironies that such a seriously talented artist would become best known for nonsense with his rhymes and limericks including the Owl and the Pussycat.

This is #58 of only 500 copies printed by Pion Press and is magnificent in both size and quality.
