Featuring the most important birds of Australia prepared by the Marist Brother Stanislas during his stay in Sydney with the Marist Brothers.

The album was presented in Paris at the Universal Exhibition of 1900, and it received a gold medal.
An exceptional testimony of the ornithology of Australia at the beginning of the 20th century.

"The Marist Brothers is an international Religious Institute of the Catholic Church founded by a French Priest, St Marcellin Champagnat, in 1817.
The mission given by St Marcellin to his followers was to “make Jesus Christ known and loved”. This has been achieved over the last two hundred years by educating, forming and caring for young people. Schools have been a favored arena for the Brothers’ apostolic work.

In 1872 four Brothers arrived from Europe to form the first Australian community. Marist life and work flourished, and with the exception of Tasmania Marist Brothers have worked in every Australian State and Territory."
