Seller. Gemma Lowles

“This is simply a stunning book plate taken from Goldsmith's History of Earth and Animated Nature Volume 1 published in 1868. It is an original engraved illustration, which has been coloured by hand. Colouring by hand was often favored over chromolithography because they could use more accurate colours for nature illustrations. This print is of various species of Peacock and Pheasants and has been mounted in a back mount ready for framing.

It measures 11.5 x 7.5 inches // 29cm x 19cm. It is in very good condition for its age, the paper has yellowed consistent with age but there are no tears and mottling is minimal. The colours remain vibrant. It would look excellent framed, If you require a framing service we use a local framers and frame print in 2cm thick black frames”
