Philip’s bird

Those of you who enjoyed meeting Philip the Monster may be interested to make the acquaintance of this magnificent creature known as Avis Philippensis – or Philip’s bird. She makes an appearance on a previous plate in James Petiver’s Catalogus classicus & topicus of 1711, for more details of which see last Friday’s post.
