Description

This is a beautiful hand coloured print from Rev. Francis Orpen Morris' A History of British Birds. The inspiration for this work actually came from the renowned English printer, Benjamin Fawcett, who approached Morris to write the text when Morris became Vicar of Nafferton. Morris had a reputation as a popular writer on natural history in general, and on birds in particular. His first book appeared as early as 1834, a guide to an arrangement of British Birds. However, his association with Benjamin Fawcett was to have remarkable results, particularly for the study of onrnithology.
A History of British Birds was printed and bound in the small village of Driffield and shipped in tea chests to London. The final 6 volume work contained 358 hand coloured plates.
Morris became an early advocate for conservation and was instrumental in founding the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

The condition of the print is very good. The hand colouring is vibrant. The paper is cream in colour. The print measures approximately 7" x 10 1/4" (17 1/2cm x 26cm).

This is an ORIGINAL antique print. A copy of the title page is included in the listing.

All prints are sent Recorded (Signed For) Priority Airmail and packaged within sturdy foam boards.
