Jardine's Animals - "LASIOPYGA NEMEA" (MONKEY) - Hand-Colored Engraving - 1833

$ 16.99


This 168 year old print is from "The Naturalist's Library - ORNITHOLOGY" 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.

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. It has high detail and the featured animal, bird or fish is hand-colored. It is suitable for framing and would be an excellent gift.
