The Art of Bird Illustration
by Maureen Lambourne
"Bird illustration has been of interest since the Egyptian tomb painters included wildfowl to sustain the dead on their journey into the world beyond. Commentary in this book takes the form of a leisurely stroll through sites along the Nile Valley, Pompeii, medieval Europe and Baroque aviaries, stopping along the way to admire the birds portrayed by the most accomplished artists and ornithologists of their time. Including over 175 representations, all the plates in this work are reproduced in their original colors, and many of them are from specialized galleries and libraries otherwise inaccessible to a wide public."

Bird Painting: The Eighteenth Century
Bird Painting: The Eighteenth Century
by Christine E. Jackson
From Library Journal:
"This extremely well-organized and clearly written source was created by a former librarian and author of Great Bird Paintings: Old Masters and Bird Paintings: The Eighteenth Century. The over 4000 entries include artists from all over the world, past and present. (Although the book is dominated by Western artists, it does include a number of works by Asian, especially Chinese, artists; but Latin American coverage is thin.) The illustrations make this reference source a delight to look at, while the extensive accompanying text--a historical survey, a list of abbreviations, an appendix of national bird art, and bird artists listed by nationality--is written in an easy-to-read style. Location and sales information are also available. Destined to become the most important source in this area, this book is recommended for most collections."
