Description

A rare set of 4 lithographs from “Birds Drawn from Nature” by Jemima Blackburn, published in Edinburgh in 1862. Jemima Blackburn (1823-1909) was one of the most popular and talented ornithological illustrators of the Victorian era. By her early twenties she had earned the praise of Sir Edwin Landseer who said “in portraying animals, I have nothing to teach her,” and was called “the best illustrator I know” by John Ruskin. Each print is in excellent condition on thick, high quality paper. These prints are quite rare, as a very limited number of coloured folio prints were published
