A large series of early hand coloured wood engravings. They were printed from separate wood blocks, one for each colour and then finished some additional hand colouring. The reverse side to each original print is blank. There were a number of editions but where the publication date is known it is stated.

The birds measure about 6 x 4 or less. Page size about 10 x 7 inches.

The BG column refers to the background. Some editions have a rectangular buff coloured background. Others have just the plain paper background. B = Buff P = Plain

All the prints are offered unmounted or unmatted

MINIMUM ORDER FIFTEEN POUNDS

These Prints are all Guaranteed to be Genuine Early Specimens

I have been buying and selling antique maps since the early 1960's during which time I had a gallery in Watergate Street, Chester for 30 years. I am now able to offer through my websites a personal service to map and print collectors.
