Gould australia 1869 facsimile fasciated honey eater . Old antique historical victorian prints maps and historic fine art----------this authentic facsimile of the actual print of 1869 was published by hill house publishers 1990. Each print comes with its editorial and as they say below once framed one would not be able to distinguish from the 1896 original print. The publishers melbourne & london description is as follows. They are not reproductions, because no camera was used in transferring the images from the b.M.(n.H.) originals. Indeed the originals are taken by museum security courier to the repro-house in singapore, where they are subjected to the preparation of new prints for printing on 5 and 6 colour offset presses. The paper used is 130 gsm mat art paper. As facsimiles, the books carry faithfully every spot, mark or stain of the originals. They also carry the original museum department of zoology stamps, and librarian's annotations. From behind glass, the naked eye would be unable to distinguish the original from the facsimile, so accurate is the colour printing. Also as facsimiles, they are exactly the same size as the originals (imperial folio: 22 x 15).. although initial volumes were printed in more than 500 copies, later production runs have not exceeded 300 for world-wide sale. This has been caused by a relative shortage of quality paper, together with the intensive hand-labour involved in their production. Note the camera has not done justice to these outstanding authentic facsimilie prints from goulds birds of australia.
