R.P. Nodder Phasianus Torquatus, Ring-Necked Pheasant, engraving c1815

by Nodder, Richard Polydore

Superb antique print of Ring Pheasant. Original hand-coloured copperplate engraving, drawn and engraved by “animal painter, and draftsman in natural history” RP Nodder (1774-1823) for “The Zoological Miscellany: being descriptions of new or interesting animals, compiled by William Elford Leach, M.D., F.R.S., and L.S.” published in London circa 1798-1813.

Frederic Polydore Nodder (1751-1801) initially provided the dramatic copperplate engraved illustrations for this work. After his death, B. McMillan, Bow-Street printed the coloured figures, drawn from nature, by R.P. Nodder, for Frederick Nodder’s wife Elizabeth & Richard ‘E. Nodder & Son, 34, Tavistock Street, Covent Garden’.
