EDITORS COMMENTS
This exquisite handcolored steel engraving showcases the vibrant and captivating features of the Chattering Lory, Lorius garrulus. The image, created by the skilled hand of Joseph Kidd, is taken from Sir Thomas Dick Lauder and Captain Thomas Brown's Miscellany of Natural History: Parrots, published in Edinburgh in 1833. The Chattering Lory, also known as the Metallic Lory or the Scarlet Lory, is a stunning parrot species native to the tropical forests of New Guinea and the eastern islands of the Indonesian archipelago. The lory is easily identified by its brilliant scarlet plumage, contrasting with the pink hue of its underparts. The metallic sheen on the feathers adds an extra layer of iridescence, making this bird a true visual delight. The Chattering Lory is named for its distinctive vocalizations, which are used to communicate with other members of its flock. These birds are omnivorous, feeding on a variety of fruits, flowers, and seeds. They are also known to eat insects and small invertebrates. This engraving is a testament to the intricate detail and artistry of the natural history illustrations of the 19th century. The meticulous handcoloring adds depth and dimension to the image, bringing the Chattering Lory to life in a way that a simple black and white drawing could not. The work of Joseph Kidd and the publication of this Miscellany of Natural History were significant contributions to the field of ornithology, providing accurate and detailed records of various bird species for scientific study and conservation efforts. This historical print is a treasure for anyone with an interest in natural history, ornithology, or the art of handcolored steel engravings. It offers a glimpse into the past, showcasing the beauty and wonder of the natural world as it was captured and documented over 180 years ago.
