A very rare print of a humming bird from Histoire naturelle et générale des colibris, oiseaux-mouches, jacamars et promerops, by Jean Baptiste Audebert. Before his death Audebert only managed to complete the section on the colibris, after which the work was continued by Louis Jean Pierre Vieillot on the basis of Audebert's drawings. The colour printing process was developed by Audebert himself. The plate is in beautiful colours. The plate is engraved by Audebert himself and are printed in oil-colours by Langlois. Louis Bouquet, 'Proffesseur de dessin' assisted in the colouring of the plates. According to Anker: in this respect they are among the best colour prints found in ornithology. Only 200 copies were printed, the legends of the plates being printed in gold.
Reference: Anker 14: Ayer/Zimmer 17: Balis 52: Nissen IVB 47.
