WT Greene Parrots In Captivity 1884

This delightful work of 81 colored wood-engraved plates was printed by Benjamin Fawcett after drawings by A.F. Lydon. The prints are hand finished, particularly the eyes and the beak, and on some there is a beautiful silvery wash applied to the feathers. Greene’s Parrots in Captivity is an authoritative and studious work of the time and is probably the original "how to" book on raising parrots in captivity. The illustrations are very vivid, beautifully colored wood engravings and are among the finest of all the illustrations of parrots from this period. In the words of the author, this work was an "attempt in the direction of familiarizing the public with a most delightful class of birds." The prints are in remarkable condition, with the colors of a beauty and vividness still fresh and vibrant to this day.  Each print measures approximately 6 ½ inches wide by 9 ½ inches long with generous margins.
