Original Antique Bird Print CAPERCAILLIE
A photogravure of the artwork by Archibald Thorburn, showing a group of these rare game birds. Produced by the Swan Electric Engraving Company. The spelling of the title is in the traditional Scottish way. It is a very finely detailed and warm engraving process and gives a very smooth and extremely life like result. An increasingly rare gravure.
The term "an 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 etc. Many prints inevitably would have been originally bound in a book at some time.
