Drawing depicting: Myzomela sclateri -- Scarlet-bibbed Myzomela [Sclater's honey-eater], A very good example of such a sketch by Gould, with his notes in the same pencil, and partly erased experiments with different positions for one of the birds., Rough layout sketch in soft pencil, with touches of watercolor. A largely illegible note may refer to the use of a drawing for the form of the plant; the other gives the name of the bird and possibly a source for the plant. The published plate follows the layout very closely. Mounted on a larger sheet, on the margins of which are pencil notes by Dr. Sauer: one on the need for care of a torn area of the drawing; "Sclater," to clarify the binomial; and "Very important original by John Gould. GCS." 38 x 28cm, mounted on 56 x 38cm. Previously cited as GS34 or 34GS.
