I went to the Natural History Museum library again in London yesterday to try to track down a depiction of the Hyacinthine Macaw, which appears in Cuvier's Le Règne Animal distribué d'après son organisation , numerous editions of which were published in the first half of the 19th century. In English it was called "The Animal Kingdom, arranged according to its organisation" and in German "Das Tierreich nach Gestaltung unterteilt" The English edition contained a large amount of new material not in the original French version. You can view the plate and small amount of text by clicking here.
