Donovan's Locust DR69 $125
Each print measures approximately 5 3/4
inches by 9 1/4 inches.
We are currently offering a selection of prints from
Edward Donovanís wonderful Naturalist's Repository,
published in 1823. These are prized for the artistry
and composition of each print, and the exotic beauty
of the prints with their fine, intense hand
coloring. Donovan drew the subjects from his own
museum & the collections of such famous scientists
as Sir Joseph Banks & Drury. As a wealthy prominent
naturalist, Donovan had entree to all the great
collections of the time. Each single print measures
approximately 5 3/4 inches wide by 9 1/4 inches
long. Prints are accompanied by the relevant
original descriptive text.
The condition of these prints is excellent. The paper is a beautiful
cream and the sheer beauty of the hand coloring is
stunning. There is little or no foxing, with
characteristic strong plate marks on Whatman paper,
some bearing the Whatman watermark. The photos are
very accurate, so please review carefully. All our
prints are authentic hand colored antique prints,
and the Donovanís are about 180 years old. These
prints are particularly prized for the large and
colorful nature of the subjects, as many of
Donovan's prints depict tiny, though perfect,
images. THESE PRINTS ARE EXTREMELY RARE.
