Diggles, Silvester Collection

 

Silvester Diggles was an artist and naturalist of the 19th Century.  Between 1863 and 1875, Diggles, unassisted, made 325 detailed watercolour paintings depicting about 600 Australian land birds, as the preliminary artwork for his plates. These watercolours, now bound in four folio volumes, are held in the Mitchell Library, Sydney.    This collection of bird prints are favoured as Diggles finest.
