About this book

In the tradition of the great victorian monographs, this sumptuous atlas is the first dedicated to pheasants and is a unique collection of hand-painted maps and illustrations. This volume covers the remaining members of the pheasant family (24 species) and includes the gorgeous variety of iridescent peacocks, the Lady Amherst pheasant, and the Golden Pheasant. It contains original paintings by one of Britain's leading wildlife painters of each species of pheasant, set against a background of their local habitat. Additionally it contains hand painted maps of each area in Asia and Africa where pheasants are endemic. The Atlas is presented in a limited edition format of 202 copies.
