Kingfishers and Kookaburras Screensaver Description

Kingfishers and Kookaburras Screensaver Free Download.

Kingfishers and Kookaburras Screensaver presents images from Richard Bowdler Sharpe's ornithological book, Family of Kingfishers, published from 1868 to 1871.

Only two-hundred copies of Famiy of Kingfishers were ever printed. It is extremely rare. Richard Bowdler Sharpe began work on A Monograph of The Alcedinidae, or Family of Kingfishers, when he was 17 years old. John Gould supplied specimens for the work, and John G.

Keulemans, the extraordinary Dutch wildlilfe painter and illustrator, drew the 140 kingfisher plates included in the book. Keulemans was highly productive and reliable. For 30 years he produced more bird paintings than any contemporary, published in over a hundred major bird books and journals.

Sharpe was a long time friend and collegue of John Gould and carried on the publicaton of Gould's unfinished works after Gould's death. Extra features: leave a sticky note on your PC; export any image as a wallpaper.
