This is a superb collection of four color rich chromolithograph bird prints. These spectacular ornithological prints are from the book “Svenska Foglar efter naturen och p sten” (Swedish Birds after nature and on stone), by publisher A. Börtzells Tryckeri AB, Stockholm. The original illustrations were the work of brothers and naturalists Wilhem, Ferdinand and Magnus von Wright, as well as Bror Halberg. The Wrights were well known in the mid 1800’s as both artist and Ornithologist. Magnus von Wright was also a well known taxidermist and held the position as taxidemist at the Helsinki University.
All four pieces are archival mounted in gold leaf frames and TruGuard UV Protected glass.
