Upon the merits of Mr. Gould's Works it is unnecessary. to enlarge, for it has long been acknowledged by Naturalists that they stand at the very head of their class
, whether as regards the accuracy of their Drawings, or the beauty and correctness of their Colouring; to say nothing of the scientific and interesting character of the Descriptions.
Another great charm of Mr. Gould's productions-one which from their commencement brought them into high popularity, and one which will ever secure for them the favour of all classes, whether scientific or not—is the unequalled skill displayed in the ATTITUDES, GROUPINGS, Movements, and ACCESSORIES of the Birds. In these animated pictures we indeed look upon them “in their habits as they lived,”-seeing not one, but in most cases, both the male and female, in various attitudes, sometimes sitting, sometimes on the wing; as well as the TREES which form their homes, and the PLANTS, Flowers, and INSECTS upon which they feed. In the Work on Humming Birds, the number and variety of the Orchids introduced are additional attractions.
