Edward Donovan (1768–1837) was an Anglo-Irish writer, illustrator, and amateur zoologist. He was a collector of natural history specimens, and a fellow of the Linnean Society and the Wernerian Society, both giving him access to great collections and libraries in London. Donovan sadly died impoverished leaving a large family destitute. The Natural History of British Birds was issued as a monthly serial in fifty parts.
