Hubbard stereoscopic view of an eagle

A Golden Eagle shot by Charles Hubbard, a bird stuffer from Dickleburgh in Norfolk and mounted in a case which he then photographed for sale as a stereo view. He advertised these in The Athenaeum on 30th August 1861:
Photographs of Birds, thirty folio plates, £5 Address C. Hubbard, 23, Michael's place, Brompton, London. All orders should be accompanied with a P.O. order. Post-office, Brompton.
The Museum of Natural History at Oxford have discovered the complete set of thirty plates advertised by Hubbard and they include a large photograph of the same Golden Eagle and the mounted specimen itself can still be seen in their collection.
