Drawing depicting: Cursorius cursor -- Cream-colored Courser. Alternate name on piece: Cursorius gallicus, Drawing on tissue. Preliminary to Gould 1591 where a third bird is added. In the background is a faint sketch of a pyramid, referring to the native land of this British visitor; it is omitted from Gould 1591 and the published plate, but palm trees are added to both. In both drawings the head of the principal bird is noticeably heavier than in the published plate.
