Hand-Colored Engravings of Bird Eggs



Even if your interest in the bird eggs of Germany and neighboring countries is close or equal to zero, there's enough artistic merit in these hand-colored engravings by JF Naumann, a self-taught engraver and etcher who co-founded the German Ornithological Society in 1850, to take a peek. The arrangement of the eggs is really the striking part, though some of the individual shell patterns are lovely.

These ten plates are collected from the five-volume Bird Eggs from Germany and Neighbouring Countries - Described and Illustrated, published in 1818. See them all on BibliOdyssey. Link

Thanks, T.R. Hummer!
