1853 White-Shafted Fan-Tailed Flycatcher Bird, Hand-Colored Antique Print
This is an authentic antique print with original hand-coloured finish. Rescued from a dis-bounded volume of The Naturalist's Library by Sir William Jardine, published in 1833. Some prints have uneven edges where they were bound, and some wear around the edges, some with losses to the paper. The pages show toning commensurate with age. However, major faults will be mentioned in the description.This would look stunning framed. The back side is blank.

Sir William Jardine, 7th Baronet of Applegirth, Dumfriesshire (23 February 1800, Edinburgh to 21 November 1874, Sandown, Isle of Wight) was a Scottish naturalist. Jardine made natural history available to all levels of Victorian society by editing and issuing the hugely popular forty volumes of The Naturalist's Library (1833-1843). The series was divided into four main sections:Ornithology (14 volumes), Mammalia (13 volumes), Entomology (7 volumes), and Ichthyology (6 volumes); each prepared by a leading naturalist. James Duncan wrote the insect volumes. The artists responsible for the illustrations included Edward Lear. The work was published in Edinburgh by W. H. Lizars. The frontispiece is a portrait of Latreille Jardine's other publications included an edition of Gilbert White's Natural History of Selborne which re-established White's reputation, Illustrations of Ornithology (1825–43), and an affordable edition of Alexander Wilson'sBirds of America.
