1862 – A Group of Cockatoos


A stunning full page book plate in black and white depicting a typical Group of Cockatoos. An illustration by Harrison Weir for J G Wood’s epic book “The Illustrated Natural History – Birds”, which contained many hundreds of illustrations by all the leading illustrators of the day, including ‘Wolf, Zwecker, Weir, Coleman, Wood, Neale Harvey etc’ and all engraved by that famous and industrious company of master engravers, “The Dalziel Brothers”, who as virtual contemporaries of Weir, dominated wood-block engraving for almost the entire period of his career, between 1842 and 1900. Currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
