About this Item

41 x 26 cm. Hand coloured engraving. Two of the margins cut inside the plate mark. A beautiful image published for the rare swedish bird book "Svensk Ornithologie" (Swedish Ornithology). Anders Sparrman is internationally renowned for his participation in captain Cooks second voyage and for his narratives from that journey, as well as for his study of South Africa. He was sent out by Linneaus to gather information and collect samples from of the natural world. Back in Sweden he published, among many other things, two folio works on birds "Museum Carlsonianum" 1786-1789, containing foreign birds and "Svensk Ornithologie" 1805-1816, comprising 68 swedish birds. He was critizized for the lack of scientific exactness, the birds did not look right scholars complained. By modern standards the plates have a stuning beauty and an air of romance. Like works of art. Rare. Staining to the margins. Large white stains to parts of the plate. Staining to the back of the plate. A couple of repaired tears to the margins. Bookseller Inventory # 3521
