The first-ever English translation of a seventeenth-century ornithology text, complete with historic watercolor illustrations This beautifully illustrated book brings together the newly commissioned, first-ever English translation of one of the earliest studies in ornithology with the original watercolors, now part of the British Royal Collection, that provided the inspiration for its engraved illustrations. The watercolors, created for the "Paper Museum" of the seventeenth-century scholar and art collector Cassiano dal Pozzo, are here combined with the translated text of amateur naturalist Pietro Olina's original Uccelliera of 1622 to create a new work that provides a fascinating glimpse of ornithology's earliest days--a period when folklore informed natural history studies as much as science did. With meditations on the "epileptic" robin redbreast and a recipe for chickpea pasta meant to satisfy a nightingale and keep it in song, this work is an enchanting re-presentation of natural history literature. Retaining the character of Olina's original design, this unique book describes over forty much-loved species, and is sure to please bird watchers, naturalists, and antiquarian book lovers alike.
