Humming Birds

 

Our photography can't do justice to the lovely colours in the following prints.  Hand coloured at the time of printing, these early 19th century steel engravings of humming birds by Wm H Lizars were presented in The Naturalist's Library by Sir William Jardine, dated 1833.

There are one or two foxing marks or spots on some of the pictures, but they are generally in very good condition.

 

Please note:

The photos are not proportionately sized, so please check the measurements given. 

Mount colour is as accurate as possible, but of course may show up differently on different computers.

Picture size is approximate, though overall mount size is pretty accurate. 

Any noticeable marks or creases are noted in the description.

All hand colouring is contemporary with the time the print was made.
