Price: $6500.00
Pair of life sized handcolored copper plate engravings of swans from Prideaux John Selby's Illustrations of British Ornithology, Edinburgh, 1821-34. Common Wild Swan and Bewick's Swan. Beautifully mounted. Excellent condition. Common Wild Swan was purchased from W. Graham Arader in 1982, and Bewick's Swan was purchased from Shreve, Crump & Low in 1990. Frames measure 28.5 x 34; images measure 20 x 25.25. Prideaux John Selby created his large scale engravings during the same period that Audubon was publishing his famous Birds of North America. Both worked with the Scottish engraver W.H. Lizars. A highly skilled engraver himself, Selby utilized Lizars' talents only for the printing and coloring of his exquisite copper plates. Other than Audubon's, Selby's is the only work to depict every bird in its actual size. Shipping extra. Connecticut residents and buyers picking up in Connecticut add 6.35% state sales tax. Buyers outside the USA are responsible for any taxes,tariffs or customs that might apply. *** If you wish to see examples of similar items we have sold and/or appraised please go to our affiliate site www.OneofaKindAntiques.com and click the Archives / Homepage logo ***
