From Animals, Drawn From Nature and Engraved in Aqua-tinta

H. Howe, 1825. Edition: Plate edition only, lacking text. With manuscript , Notes: An exquisite series of prints after drawings by Charles Catton (1728-1798), a founding member of the Royal Academy. The drawings “from nature” were done in the late 18th century and depicted a variety of exotic and domestic animals such as lynx, lions, ermines, monkeys, and badgers. The prints were done in aquatint etching, a complex method popular at the end of the 18th century. This style of etching produces a delicate detail and texture that faithfully represents the appeal of the original drawings. The prints were originally published in London, in 1778, but in the early 19th century the drawings made their way to New Haven, where they were reprinted by a local book dealer and publisher by the name of H. Howe. Both editions are rather rare. , Size: Folio, Illustration: Illustrated with 36 aquatint plates of various animals., Category: Book Natural History; Book Plate Books General;. Few plates with marginal tears restored expertly otherwise very good. Plates are clean and crisp. Item #B4728
