Nature” by Jemima Blackburn, published in Edinburgh
in1862. These rare hand colored lithographs depict many
different species of birds along with their nests &
eggs, and are among some of the most endearing nest &
bird illustrations of the period.
Jemima Blackburn (1823-1909) was
one of the most popular and talented ornithological
illustrators of the Victorian era. By her early twenties
she had earned the praise of Sir Edwin Landseer who said

were published & this work is most often seen in late
editions. Each print measures approximately 10 1/2
inches by 14 1/2 inches. There is no descriptive text,
but a copy of the title page will be included. The
