Pfittacus minor gutture fufco Occidentalis. A wonderful 18th Century depiction of the brown throat green parrot with Cherries by George Edwards. $650.

George Edwards Parrots…  Dating back to the 18th century, birds including these antique parrot prints were in vogue among the art and nature aficionados.  These were published by Dr. Seligmann from 1748-1771. Sensational handmade linen rag paper was used to print the copper plate engraved images onto.  Each rare piece comes from 18th Century Nuremberg, Germany.  Intense watercolour pigmentation has been used to make these exquisite pieces of vintage parrot framed prints glow with hand color engravings.

During the years of publication, the vintage copper plate engravings of parrots were watercoloured by hand. Due to the soft and fragile surface of the copper plates, the engraver had to re-engrave another plate after 300 strikes. The water coloring artists used were water colors that contained toxic metals and hence the colorists perished at an early age. With exemplary detailing, the vintage parrot prints still exist at Anne Hall Antique Prints in pristine condition. At Anne Hall Antique Prints you can expect to find some of the best, rare, authentic antique prints, as you can easily browse through our wide spectrum of subjects and collection on our website and conveniently place your order.

Each old framed print measures 17×21.”

These are outstanding old parrot prints. These old copper plate engravings of parrots were water colored by hand during the years of publication. A laborious craft of everyone involved. The paper was difficult to acquire, the engraver would have to re engrave another plate after just 300 strikes, due to the naturally soft surface of the copper plate. The water colorists would die at young ages, due to the toxicity of the water colors, which many contained metals. Yet these old prints still exist in superb fine condition. These old parrot prints have exemplary detail. They have lasted for all these years, primarily due to the high quality of the rag paper. Paper during the 1700’s was literally made of rags, right up through the turn of the 20th Century. Coming from linen, flax, etc, NOT TREES, there was no acid content in the paper. This explains why paper produced in the 20th Century and after, coming from trees, does not last for long. These are fantastic old parrot prints. This is one of the most important series ever published on the subject. The paper size measures about 10 1/4 x 17″  Click here to contact us.

Water Birds John Gould.  Beautiful Hand Colored Lithographs, 14 1/2 x 21 1/2″

John Gould is perhaps the most famous English ornithologist of the 19th century.  He illustrated some 2999 different birds.  Issued by subscription in large folio parts, his work was in great demand by the wealthy, clergy, doctors, and other naturalists. To create a monumental work on a certain type of bird say the birds of Great Britain circa 1860, many steps were involved. First one had to travel and see the Bird in person, then a meticulously drawn illustration was made with notations of colors, behavior, and other scientific data that was observed. Through the art of lithography, The illustrations would come to life in the form of water colored lithographs for subscribers. The high quality paper was made by a paper maker. Then to create a lithograph, the process by which a limestone piece was drawn upon with a sort of a greasy crayon. The slab of limestone was then dipped into nitric acid which burnt away parts not under the greasy crayon.  The slab of limestone was wiped off and inked up, then watercolors could be professionally added. The bird prints John Gould created required tremendous workmanship, being one of the most laborious processes of printing known.

Owls by Reverend F.O. Morris! Antique hand colored engravings. These old owl prints Morris were published in 1890. These English hand colored wood engravings were produced by Reverend F.O. Morris, and no kidding, his entire congregation. He loved birds, apparent by the illustrations he authored on birds, published books on bird, eggs and nests. FIRST… The original illustrations had to be transferred onto boxwood plates. Each plate measured about 1″ thick. Each slab was painstakingly engraved with special engraver’s tools known as burins. When the engraving was finished, it was inked up with black ink, and printed onto a high quality piece of paper. The paper on which the engravings were printed is a whole other story. After the printing dried, then the water color illumination would be added by hand. Many metallic were used in water colors in the 19th Century. My selection of old owl prints, illustrations by Morris include: the Hawk Owl, Mottled Owl, and the Snowy Owl. By the way, I feel anyone is TRUELY PRIVILEGED to see an owl in the wild. And especially privileged to have one on their property. Each old hand colored engraving measures about 6 1/2 x 10″. Excellent condition with bright water coloring.Click here to contact us.

Bolton Birds Nests Harmonia Ruralis

Bolton Birds Nests Harmonia Ruralis.  English hand colored engravings 1821.  Coming from perhaps the most desirable books on birds.  The work is a study of birds, the nests they made and the eggs they laid.  We are pleased to offer this absolutely charming work.  Bolton’s work showing birds with their Nests entitled Harmonia Ruralis.  Bolton bird and nest prints are hand colored copper plate engravings. This is James Bolton’s lovely work entitled Harmonia Ruralis which was published in London in 1821. Harmonia Ruralis is an essay towards natural history of British song birds, illustrated with life sized figures of the birds, male and female with natural attitudes. The prints are water colored copper plate engravings on a heavy wove paper. The colors are bright and vivid. There is some smudging, most will not be seen after framing, however, please see the photos. Each piece measures 9 x 11 1/2″ and are sold as a set, the bird with its bird’s nest, one price for both vintage prints. Click here to contact us.

A laborious craft of all those involved in producing something like Harmonius Ruralis by James Bolton.  These Bolton Birds was published in 1821. First one had to find and identify the species of bird along with the nest. Second the illustrations had to be meticulously drawn, with the best accuracy. The image would be transferred onto a copper plate and engraved with burins. The paper was hard to acquire, and the engraver would have to re engrave another plate after just 300 strikes. The water colorists would die at young ages, due to licking tips of their paint brushes. Yet these old prints still exist in super fine condition and exemplary condition. That is mostly due to the quality of the rag paper. Paper was made of rag right up through the turn of the 20th Century. Coming from linen, flax, etc, NOT TREES, there was no acid in the paper. Very expensive to acquire, inconsistent, etc. TODAY Paper is made from trees, and was during the 20th Century, is highly acidic and does not last for long.

An Evolution of Printing and Age of Discovery…

The history of antique printing methods of the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries is very interesting. My website consists of old prints, published in obsolete printing methods, that really do not exist today.  The entire subject revolves about how fast information could be published for readership. Readership in the old days revolved around money and new discoveries, especially in the area pertaining to natural history. If one could discover a new species of fish… Wow! That would boost the desire for information. It had a trickle down effect. Like today, in the OLD days, desire for information lead to wanting more and more information, almost a viscous cycle. Hence the production of publishing. First to publish religious material. Only the high priests could convey the printed messages. This lasted for a long time. Around 1800 or so, more people read. It was fashionable to be educated. Everyone could understand a beautiful illustration. They did not have to understand the words, but it encouraged understanding. Soon, the publications became subscriptions, everyone wanted them. Like today, everyone wants the latest devise. Initially periodical subscriptions were made to those who could afford it: royalty, clergy, noblemen, etc. Who could read? The answer is only the educated, super wealthy, religious, clergy, nobility, etc… Oftentimes on expeditions, specimens were collected and captured, many alive, many did not survive the journeys home, nor the conditions when relocated. Many journeys were three months at sea.  In the 18th and 19th Centuries museums of curiosities became the rage. Hoards of people would rush to museums to see exotic specimens brought home from expeditions of early explorers and naturalists. Royalty, Clergy financed explorations and hence the illustrations, publications that developed from trips. Often times young men, early scientists, aboard ships recorded the natural history sightings they saw along the way. They recorded every detail of the natural history specimens they came across. All of this absolutely fascinated the public. And so the history of illustration, depicting and describing what had been found, along these tremendous explorations was found. How fast the information moved forward can be seen through the history of printing. Exactly as the way things are moving forward these days, so did printing history. It started with very slow laborious hand drawn pages by scribes and monks onto velum, to copper plate engraving on hand made hand laid linen rag paper, and moved forward to faster and faster printing, from lithography, hand colored or not to printing in colors, chromolithography. All driven by readership subscriptions. It all ended about 1900. when photographic printing became the 20th century tool, to today, when everything is digital and untouchable on the internet.

This is the work of John James Audubon. These antique prints are a part of American History. These antique Audubon lithographs are original hand coloured lithographs.  We are pleased to offer these hand colored antique Audubon squirrel prints.  They come from the First Royal Octavo Edition Published by John James Audubon in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the year of 1844. Each antique squirrel print measures 7 x 10 1/2″.  They were drawn from nature by John Woodhouse Audubon.  Drawn on stone called a lithograph by William E. Hitchcock. Lithographed, printed and coloured provided by the publisher, J.T. Bowen, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1844. The Quadrupeds of North America, which encompassed a total of 150 native American four legged,  or “quadruped” mammals, each individually documented and portrayed in their land natural settings by John Woodhouse, John James’s son. This was a collaborative work between the very famous 19th Century American painters: John James Audubon and his two sons: John Woodhouse Audubon; and Victor Gifford Audubon; and the naturalist Reverend John Bachman. They documented and portrayed what J.J. Audubon considered a dwindling resource: the native mammals set among the splendor and majesty of the uninhabited America landscape. The team traveled westward from Audubon’s home in Mill Grove, Pennsylvania up the Missouri River and through territory just previously explored by Lewis and Clark. From the Canadian border of the Northern Russian Territories, now Alaska, southward to Mexico. This monumental journey was extremely hard on the wildlife team, and therefore influenced the compositions of their artwork and paintings, to some degree.  Despite tumultuous weather, these old lithographs are a pertinant record of North American animals. The Quadrupeds of North American is a wildlife essay which provides a classic contribution to both American History and the artwork that documented it during the early to mid 19th Century. The American Review, a Whig journal, heralded the national origin of the Quadrupeds: “We have at last have a Great National Work, originated and completed among us- authors, artists and artisans of which are our own citizens. the Bible of Nature!” Most of this information was sourced from the book entitled: John James Audubon in the West. Published in 2000 in New York by Henry H. Abrams.

Copper plate engravings are old antique prints. It was an antique printing method, like photographs in the old days, so that people could see images of what these studies were about. In copper plate engraving, a very thin piece of copper was attached to a block of wood. Tools called burins were used to engrave into the copper. While the paper was slightly damp, the copper plate was carefully inked up and printed onto the piece of hand made rag paper, actually engraving the paper. Water colors could be added by hand, using the finest natural products obtained from everywhere on the Earth.

Lithography is an antique printing method. It came after copper plate engraving. Generally a lithograph was printed in one color, black. A type of greasy crayon was used to draw onto a special type of limestone, with just the right porosity. After the image was completed, the limestone was emerged into nitric acid, burning away what was not under the greasy crayon, leaving that portion in relief. It was inked up and printed. The image frequently was illuminated with water colors.

Chromolithography is an antique printing method whereas each color was printed from individual key stoned limestone plates. An extended version of lithography, quite laborious requiring a very skilled craftsman to get the registration just right and not distorted, or render the image out of registration. The process virtually replaced the laborious and expense of hand water coloring. Adventually, c.1900 photographic off set printing replaced any and all antique printing methods, pretty much forever.
