This is a beautiful hand coloured print from Sir William Jardine's Naturalist Library, published by Henry G. Bohn. Jardine made natural history available to all levels of victorian society by editing and issuing the forty volumes of The Naturalist's Library. It was divided into four main sections; Ornithology, Mammalia, Entomology and Ichthyology; each prepared by a leading naturalist. The artists responsible for the illustrations included Edward Lear.
The condition of the print is excellent. The hand colouring is vibrant. The paper is cream in colour. This is a small print measuring approximately 6 1/4" x 4"(16cm x 10cm).
This is an ORIGINAL antique print. A copy of the title page is included in the listing.
