This is a original large folio aquatint with hand coloring of a Glossy Ibis bird by Prideaux John Selby. It is hand colored and is dated 1826 in the watermark in the paper.This print is in wonderful fresh condition as it has never been framed before.The paper size is aprox. 24 by 18. Selby was the 1st to do birds life size.He put out a book called Selby's British Ornithology over the course of 10 years. His 1st edition prints are quite scarce. I found 1 other copy of this print online for $3000.00.This print is matted and shrink wrapped.
