Perruche a Scapulaire. Perruche Souris. Australian King Parrot c1837

by Travies, Edouard

Fine French antique print of Australian King Parrot & South American Monk or Quacker Parakeet c1837.

Original fine hand-coloured engraving by Manceau after the drawing by eminent natural history artist, Edouard Travies (1809-1859) who worked with eminent scientists, and exhibited his work regularly at the Paris Salon, between .
Published in Paris c1837.

This is a lovely engraving with crisp colour and clean paper - except for a pale foxing spot at mid-left and soil discolouration at the extremities of the page. The page size is 245 x 160mm. It has been printed off-centre, but it is such a delicate and fine engraving that reducing the window size to 189 x 110mm (9 5/8 x 6 1/4 inches) can display the beautiful birds better and not show any soiling. We have mouonted this antique print between 'antique white' conservation ragmat and covered it with cellophane to protect it until framed. Please email if you would like to see an image of it with reduced window size.)
