Arader Galleries is pleased to announce a syndicated distribution of authentic hand-colored lithographs from John Gould's
most famous work: A Monograph of the Trochilidae - the Hummingbirds. These beloved images were published between
1849 and 1881, based on specimens in Gould's own magnificent collection and from his travels.
These engravings are renowned for their use of mineral inks that duplicate the natural iridescence that makes these birds so special. This is the finest natural history coloring of all time, nothing else before or since compares. These 418 beautiful, hand colored lithographs in superb condition will be distributed at 1:00 pm on March 12, 2011 at our gallery in New York
at 1016 Madison Avenue.
A syndication is a wonderful opportunity to build or add to a collection at tremendously discounted price. 83 shares consisting of five lithographs are available at $4,800, or $960 each. The order of selection will be determined in
three rounds by a random lottery.
