Sommerings Pheasant 1839 Victorian Sir William Jardine Naturalist Library Antique Engraving, Pl 17

by PetitPoulailler

Here is a handsome, hand-colored engraving gleaned from Sir William Jardine's ornithology and gallinaceous birds natural history reference featuring -

Sommering's Pheasant.

And yes, I had to look it up, too - 'gallinaceous' means 'heavy-bodied ground-feeding domestic or game birds'. Finely etched and published by William H. Lizars of Edinburgh.

The heavy paper is blank on its reverse, measures 4.25" x 6.5" (10x17 cm), and shows gentle all over tanning. The paper is smooth and clean, the paper edges are clear and unmarked, with the corner tips only just softened. The hand coloring is bright and vivid and exact and there are no tears, folds, creases, or marks. A beautiful subject to frame and gift or perhaps you'll use in your art - card and tag creations, collage, keep in that growing scrap-book paper stash you love.

You are purchasing an original 1839 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
