Initially, Edward Lear began working on ornithological illustrations at the age of eighteen. He was shy, asthmatic, and epileptic. He was the youngest of 21 children, and grew up in a doting family with a mother who had a stroke. His first ornithological illustration project was a series of parrot prints, which he tried to sell to subscribers. In 1832, Gould spotted his work, and in the following years hired him to produce illustrations for his book. He drew hundreds of bird species, including toucans, flamingoes, a lion, and other species. He published The Birds of Europe between 1832 and the early 1830s.
