Morris became an early advocate for conservation and was instrumental in founding the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in England.

The condition of the plate is good, with high quality, heavy paper.
The print measures approximately 6 inches by 9 3/4 inches.

Our prints at WE SELL USED GODS are authentic antique prints and guaranteed to be from the date stated. These print(s) are about 120 years old.

Morris wrote the text, Alexander Frank Lydon (1836-1917) was the illustrator and Benjamin Fawcett (1808-1893) printed the plates.

The desirability of this work and its survival in such pristine condition is due to the superb skills and techniques of Fawcett, which are now largely lost. He selected, ground and mixed his inks with the utmost care. Only heavy paper stock of the finest quality was used, often imported from France. This paper has seen little deterioration with almost no foxing and it retains its fine ivory color and sheen. The plates were color printed in up to four colors, with additional hand coloring.
