$ 14.99



This 168 year old print is from "The Naturalist's Library" published by Sir William Jardine between the years 1833 - 1843.  The etcher/engraver for all 40 volumes in this series was his brother-in-law , the Scottish artist William Lizars.

This collaboration produced one of the most charming and popular collections of natural history books. The series was divided into 4 main sections - ornithology, ichthyology, mammalian and entomology. Jardine himself was a gifted naturalist and artist. Many of his original water colors are in the Natural History Museum, London and in the Royal Scottish Museum, Edinburgh. Born in 1800, Jardine was the son of the 6th Baronet of Applegirth, whom he succeeded in 1820. 

The hand colored engravings in The Naturalist's Library are based on paintings by some of the finest natural history artists known - some past, as Maria Sybilla Merian in the entomology section, and some contemporary, as William Swainson and Edward Lear in ornithology. Jardine himself wrote 14 of the volumes. 

This copper engraving print (the size of the picture) is about 3 1/2 " x 5 1/2 " on a page that is about 4 " x 6 1/2 " It is in  good condition with usual age toning. The digital watermark on the image will not be on the engraving that you receive. It has high detail and the featured animal that is hand-colored. It is suitable for framing and would be an excellent gift.
