More About This Item


Item Overview

Description: This magnificent, copperplate engraving featured here displays remarkable, original hand-coloring. The plate is from the large paper edition of Francois Martinet's work with Buffon Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux. The work was published between 1765 and 1780 by Edme Louis Daubenton in France. Each plate features a delicate yellow border, which many believe led to the development of French matting. Each plate is on fine chain-linked, watermarked paper with nice, wide margins.
