PORT NATAL SUN-BIRD, NECTARINIA NATALENSIS,

PLATE 12

This page is sourced from The Naturalist’s Library Volume 13 of the Ornithology Collection on Sun Birds. 

The Naturalists Library is an extensive collection of books consisting of hand-colored plates produced from engravings by William H. Lizars and edited by Sir William Jardine in the 1830s and 1840s. 

THIS IS AN ORIGINAL PAGE FROM THE BOOK ITSELF. It’s enveloped in an ecru colored and textured double matting. Perfect as a single hanging or combine with others in the collection for a fantastic gallery wall.

Also included, from the same book is the reference information on said bird. All are enclosed in a sheer velum sealed sleeve for extra protection. 

I acquired all of the bird prints from the estate of two highly regarded college professors who after retirement in the 1990s turned their love for collecting into a prosperous antique business selling in Round Top as well as across the South.

As you can imagine, their estate was unbelievable…it had the most extensive Majolica collection I’ve ever seen. They were avid book collectors, orchid enthusiasts, and custom framers who expertly framed botanicals and birds from antique books and magazines. 

It measures 8.5” wide x 10” long matted, the page itself measures approximately 4” wide x 6.5” long. 

$57 INCLUDES INSURED SHIPPING in the continental US.

 They are all in nice estate condition. Please see all the pics as they are considered part of the description. Due to being over 175 years old, their may be minor age related imperfections but nothing that detracts from their true loveliness or displability.
