The Naturalist's Library

Sir William Jardine (publisher) • Wm. Lizars (principal engraver)
1830s-1840s, London & Edinburgh

Original hand-coloured engravings over 170 years old
Sheet size: approximately 3.5 x 6.5 inches.

Wonderful for small walls or intimate spaces. They also make great groupings of 3, 5, or more!

These vibrant prints are from the Mammals volumes of The Naturalist's Library.  Sir William Jardine, who edited the series, commissioned experts throughout Europe to author each of the 40 volumes organized by four major topics — mammals, birds, insects, and fish.  The volumes included over 1300 hand-coloured plates produced from engravings by William Lizars, the eminent Scottish engraver and painter of topographical views.
