The Birds of Europe is the first of Gould’s works to feature plates by Edward Lear. The greater number were drawn and lithographed by Elizabeth Gould, but a quarter of them were drawn and lithographed by Lear. All the plates were coloured under the direction of My Bayfield. Finally the printing was done by C. Hullmandel (Copenhagen/Anker). Engraved by LEAR, Edward.
