Our wonderful team of NADFAS Heritage Volunteers has now cleaned 79% of the Balfour & Newton Libraries' Special Collections!
Here they are pictured with a volume of The birds of Australia : in seven volumes, by John Gould, published by the author in London, 1848. The birds featured are Splendid Grass Parakeets! (Lithograph print with original hand-colouring). This work is now thoroughly clean, thanks to the efforts of the volunteers!
Well done, and many thanks, ladies!
