'The Crested Cockatoo'
Ornithological study of a Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita) native to Australia. Plate 26 from Journal of a voyage to New South Wales...by John White (J.Debrett, London, 1790). The accompanying text states that: "The bird seems liable to great variation both as to size and colour; the white in some being of much purer appearance than in others, and the yellow on the crest and tail more predominant. All the varieties agree in having the beak and legs blackish." The plate is inscribed: "S.Stone Delin. The Crested Cockatoo, London Published as the Act directs Dec: 29, 1789, by I.Debrett."
Original: copperplate engraving. 1790
