This is a original hand colored lithographic plate Lophophorus Sclateri from Elliot's Monograph of the Phasianidae.This was one of the best bird books ever published and ranks right up there with Audubon.The plate is 19 by 23 3/4 and retains the original stitch marks on one edge and is not laid down.This is one of the more dramatic plates from this book and the colors are still quite strong and rich.We have left it in its early French hand colored mat which has caused some matt burn on the mat edge but there is plenty of open space to re-matte it and take that away if you wish.
