A Distribution of John Gould’s Masterpiece: A Monograph of the Trochilidae - The Hummingbirds
Your Cost: FIVE plates for $4,800 or $960 each
Arader Galleries is pleased to announce a syndicated distribution of authentic hand colored lithographs from John Gould's most famous work: A Monograph of the Trochilidae - the Hummingbirds. These first edition beloved images were published in London  – 1861. They were based on specimens in Gould's own magnificent collection and on his own travels. They are renowned for their use of mineral inks that duplicate the iridescence that makes these birds so special. This is the finest natural history coloring of all time. Nothing else before or since compares. These beautiful, hand colored lithographs in superb condition from all six volumes and will be distributed on Saturday, September 17th here at our gallery in New York at 1016 Madison Avenue between 78th and 79th street.
A syndication is a wonderful opportunity to build or add to a collection at tremendously discounted prices. 83 shares consisting of five lithographs are available at $4,800, or $960 each. The order of selection will be determined in three rounds by a random lottery. Numbers 1 through 83 will be drawn and beginning with "1" each owner will select one piece. The order will be reversed in the second round, with each owner beginning with "83" selecting two pieces. The final round will also be in reverse order, and two more pieces will be selected. The process is fun, and owner is guaranteed to receive lithographs having a retail value of at least $15,000. A deposit of $1,000 will hold your place in the syndication, with the balance due ten days prior to the sale.
We hope you will join us for this special event.
