David Attenborough and Errol Fuller.

A beautifully illustrated book that describes the discovery, art and natural history of the birds of paradise. The first nine chapters each deal with an individual genus and are arranged in the historical order of discovery by European science. The first bird skins arrived in Europe in 1522 but most species were first described in the nineteenth century. The last two chapters concern the dances of the birds and the hybrids. An appendix provides a list of people associated with the discovery and visual representation of birds of paradise. An outstanding book printed on fine heavy paper.
