"This work was interrupted by Gould's departure for Australia in search of material for his work on the birds of that region, and was never resumed. Certain of the species were described in papers read in advance before the Zoological Society of London, but in most cases these descriptions were never published in the 'Proceedings' of that body." --Catalogue of the Edward E. Ayer Ornithological Library.

Each plate accompanied by leaf of descriptive letterpress.
