Kiener Shell Prints 1834

We are very pleased to offer these rare hand colored stipple engravings from Louis-Charles Kienerís Species Generale et Iconographie des Coquiles Vivantes, 1834-1879.   This is a scarce work indeed, having only a few listings at auction in the past 20 years.  We have been fortunate to find partial sets twice in the past 5 years, this one in particularly excellent condition.  Louis-Charles Kiener (1799-1881) took a keen interest in conchology, and at a time when lithography had become the most popular form of printing, he opted to illustrate his love of shells with stipple engravings and hand coloring.  Each print with ORIGINAL HAND COLORING measures approximately 6" by 9".  There is a title page, but no descriptive text. The condition of these prints is good, with vibrant hand colouring & soft creamy paper with very few defects. The shells are all beautifully arranged and finely hand colored. All of our prints are authentic antique prints, guaranteed to be the stated age.
