Description

Down from $64.00. Being offered is a hand-colored lithograph entitled ‘Water Duck’ done by Beverley A. Morris, MD, who showcased her works in a book entitled British Game Birds and Waterfowl published by Groombridge and Sons, out of London. This lithograph dates back to the mid-1800’s. It is authenticated by Paul B. Victorius of Charlottesville, Virginia in the early 40’s.

The print measures 8” X 5 3/4” inside the frame and with frame, the print measures 11” x 7 ¾”.

Condition of the lithograph is excellent. The colors are rich and vibrant. The frame could use some cleaning up, and is in very good condition.

SOME MORE OF THE STORY:
In 1924 Paul Victorius left his home in New York City to study medicine in London. As he pursued a medical degree he began collecting rare books and manuscripts, focusing primarily on material concerning Charles Darwin and the theory of evolution. After two years, Victorius dropped his medical studies and opened his first bookshop, selling books mainly to finance his growing evolution collection. His London bookshop was destroyed early in World War II, and in 1940 Mr. Victorius returned to the United States, eventually settling in Charlottesville, Virginia. By this time, his collection had grown to become reputedly the largest and finest in the world, with the exception of the one owned by Charles Darwin himself.

After setting up shop in Charlottesville, Mr. Victorius began buying and selling fine prints and antiquarian maps. He also founded a picture-framing business that still operates on University Avenue today. In 1949 Mr. Victorius made a partial gift of his entire collection of Darwin-related material to the University of Virginia Library; the remainder of his collection was purchased with funds from an anonymous donor.
