About

PRICE IS FOR EACH FRAMED PRINT "Sammlung Verschiedenr Auslandischer und Selener Vogel", Nuremberg 1770-1773. Edited by Johann Michael Seligmann (1749 -1776): engravings with original hand-colouring after the drawings by George Edwards. A prominent English naturalist and ornithologist, George Edwards (1694 -1773) is best known for his work, ""A Natural History of Uncommon Birds"", which he published between 1743 and 1761 whilst Librarian to the Royal College of Physicians in London. It contains coloured engravings and descriptions of more than six hundred species ""not before described or delineated"" and introduced an English audience to many exotic birds from Europe, Asia and North and South America. Following the great popularity of Edwards' work, a German edition was published, with re-engraved plates, by Johann Michael Seligmann (1749 -1776), from which edition these engravings are taken. Presented in parcel-gilt, hand-made decalcomania frames. Framed size: 495 x 420 mm (19.5 x 16.5 inches)
