Also this book mentions (European) goldfinches:
Sonia Roberts, Bird-Keeping and Birdcages: A History, Newton Abbot, 1972.
It might also be helpful to ask Julia Breittruck if she has more suggestions - she wrote a dissertation (in German) on relations between humans and pet birds in the French Enlightenment.
Not especially about goldfinches, but mentioning them:
Louise E. Robbins, Elephant Slaves and Pampered Parrots: Exotic Animals in Eighteenth-Century Paris, Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 2002
Julia Breittruck, "Pet Birds. Cages and Practices of Domestication in Eighteenth-Century Paris", in: InterDisciplines 1 (2012)
I have a student who is working on a project about the representation of goldfinch in art.
