Paris,Levrault,(1820-) 1838 (-1839). The 5 Volumes,which were intended as a supplement to Buffon's 'Planches Enluminées',contained 600 coloured plates of birds after Jean Gabriel Pretre and Nicholas Huet,both leading artist's in the field of natural history illustration.

This female specimen,which is in the collection of the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle de Paris, was collected by Jean Jacques Dussumier (1792-1883),a ship-owner and merchant from Bordeaux, who made several voyages to China and India collecting new species of birds and fishes for the Musée de Paris.
