I have recently gone down that track after reading the Birdmans Wife as well. Beyond Q at Weston has a set of the Gould Volumes in the original folio size. Facinating!

Yes Terry, an advantage of living in Canberra is there are many books of ornithological interest held by the NLA, which received the benefit of Gregory Mathews' library, many volumes annotated in GMM's own hand. Digitised versions of the full Gould's Birds of Australia can be found on the internet. You have probably been looking at one of the facsimile sets where the colours are much brighter than in the original faded lithographs. So far as the text is concerned, an improved version was published by Gould in 1865 as a 'Handbook' nearly 20 years after B of A (1840-1848), particularly useful for the additional vernacular and aboriginal names of birds. This was reprinted by Lansdowne 1972.
