Red Grouse, Ptarmigan Bird Eggs HWTA18 $35
Each print measures
approximately 5 1/4 inches wide by 8 1/4 inches long
We are delighted to offer these hand colored
engravings from the 1846 edition of Coloured
Illustrations of the Eggs of British Birds by
William C. Hewitson. The hand coloring in these plates
is exquisite. The delicate features of each egg have
been painstakingly rendered with pristine accuracy.
Exhibiting a naïf & almost primitive quality, these hand
colored egg engravings glow on the page, and give the
appearance of being entirely hand drawn. This work
was the first major British work on oology, preceded
only by Donovan's 17-plate volume in 1826, and is
becoming increasingly rare.
Each print measures approximately 5 1/4 inches by 8
1/4 inches. The photos are very accurate, so please
review carefully. The descriptive text is included with
these prints, and a copy of the title page will be
provided. All our prints are authentic antique prints
and guaranteed to be from the date stated. These prints
are about 150 years old.
