favorite this post John Prideaux Selby Hand Colored Engraving Plates - $1500 (Greenwood,SC) hide this posting unhide

Hand Colored Engravings. There are four plates with original plate marks. Selby did onithology (study of birds) and identified them in his excellent examples tbrough his exceptional
Paintings and engravings in the 1800's. He is said to be the best for providing life size examples of wildlife through his artwork and is said to be even better an artist than Audobon whom he studied under for a time. He published two British Ornithology Books in the mid 1800's. These original engravings are so crisp and detailed, it looks as the feathers would feel real if you touched them. All four are in good condition. Three of the four are framed. The fourth has frame and backing but was removed for professional examination. These are the real deal. Many Audubon dealers reconize Selbys works and have them in their galleries. This is a chance to get some excellent art at a good price that continually increases in value. Serious interest only please. Text show contact info for more information.
