1864 Antique Print of Birds

Print WHITE STORK Roseate Spoonbill SENEGAL JABIRU Victorian Engraving


This listing is for an 1864 print from a series of engraved plates (see provenance below), from the dated stated and not a later reproduction.



It shows: Ciconia Alba (Ciconia ciconia) or White Stork - Platalea Ajaja (Ajaja ajaja) or Roseate Spoonbill - M Senegalensis (saddle-billed stork Ephippiorhynchus senegalensis) or Senegal Jabiru. These were published un-coloured, so would have been hand coloured at some time after originally publishing date.

Provenance: Museum of Natural History; Being an Account etc of The Animal Kingdom by Sir John Richardson, William S. Dallas, T. Spencer Cobbold, William Baird, Adam White Curators etc. Published by William Mackenzie, Howard Street Glasgow and Paternoster Row, London etc.



Suitable for framing. It measures overall 268mm x 180 mm ( 10.5 x 7 " ) approximately, including titled borders. There is age yellowing, and handling marks to edges and main body of the printed area - please check the larger picture for condition. This item will be shipped flat in a board backed envelope, and protected inside that envelope by a plastic sleeve. "Info." in the description refers to my research.

The term " original print" is a pictorial image made in a manner which allows it to be multiplied, and originating from the date stated. This includes examples of various methods of printmaking including engravings, etchings, woodcut, lithograph etc. Many prints/maps inevitably would have been originally bound in a book at some time as was this one.
