Stunning public domain parrot illustrations from The Natural History of Parrots (1801—1805) by Francois Levaillant a French explorer, collector, and ornithologist. This collection of antique lithographs record several incredible parrot species. It is said that Levaillant mounted the bird specimens, which were preserved in arsenic soap, in lifelike positions so the artists could capture the images realistically.
