    Description

    Mrs. Edward Bury (née Priscilla Susan Falkner) (circa 1790s-1869). Crinum Declinatum - Plate 43.

    An absolutely beautiful aquatint engraving by R. Havell, with hand-coloring, from Mrs. Bury's A Selection of Hexandrian Plants, Belonging to the Natural Orders Amaryllidae and Liliacae (London: 1831-1834). In excellent condition except for a couple of tiny spots and two unobtrusive shallow horizontal wrinkles to the center of the left side of the sheet. Light penciled notations. The sheet appears to be untrimmed and measures approximately 17.75 x 24.75 inches.


    More Information:

    Mrs. Bury's plates were originally issued by subscription. It is reported that there were as few as 79 subscribers, including John James Audubon, whose Birds of America Havell was working on concurrently with Mrs. Bury's great work.
