Francois Levaillant • Free Original Public Domain Parrot Illustrations

Public domain illustrations from The Natural History of Parrots (1801–1805) by Francois Levaillant, French explorer, collector, and ornithologist. This collection of antique lithographs records several incredible parrot species. It is said that Levaillant mounted the bird specimens, which were preserved in arsenic soap, in life like positions so the artists could capture the images realistically.
