Antique Hand Colored Bird Prints, Hummingbirds, 1833, 1843, Artist Sir William Jardine, Jardin’s Naturalists Library, Oval Frames (C990)


This is a mini set of bird engravings. They are hand colored. These prints appear to come from an 1830s / 1840s book called Jardine’s Naturalists Library by a Scottish Baronet, Sir William Jardine (1800-1874)

Plate 10 is Trochilus Delalandii - Deland’s Humming Bird

Plate 30 is Trochilus Swainsonii 

Frames - They appear to be antique as well. They were made in Germany and are marked RICHARDS with a patent. They are wood with curved / domed glass. One frame has cracked in half with a 2” section missing. (I have the piece in a tool box somewhere. If I can find it I will include it.)

Condition - Very Good - These engravings were likely cut into the oval shapes. They have been protected by glass and the frame backs are nailed to the frames.

Approximate size 

6” x 4.5” each
