An antique original 1884 hand finished print from W.T. Greene's "Parrots in Captivity"

These delightful coloured wood-engraved plates were 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. 

Benjamin Fawcett was one of the greatest color printers of the 19th century. He pioneered a system of wood block engraving from multiple wood blocks that resulted in vivid finely colored works such as these.
