Dedicated to the Most Illustrious Princess, Charlotte, Queen of Great Britain, The Naturalist's Miscellany contains works of such beauty and originality that it is beloved by all who see it. The prints are hand-coloured engravings on strong Whatman paper, with the occasional Whatman watermark or date. The prints are in remarkable condition for a work that is 200 years old, with the colours of a beauty and vividness unsurpassed to this day in the world of hand-coloured prints.
