Hi all

I did not check all messages relating to the subject, please forgive me if I 
repeat here what has been pointed out before.

The 7 volumes of Gould's 'Birds of Australia' plus the Supplement have been 
scanned in and are available online from the National Library of Australia 
(Canberra) website:

To see the illustration of e.g. the Grey Falcon in vol. 1, I couldn't think of 
anything else so quickly, go to
and the accompanying text is at

Further, the NLA provides a photocopy/photograph service where you can order 
for $35 (if I remember correctly) the electronic version of an expertly taken 
photograph of the illustration of your choice, not only from Gould's volumes.

That is simply fantastic. Enjoy it.
