Why We Love This

Watercolor from the first edition of The Birds of Great Britain, 1789, by William Lewin, a distinguished naturalist and artist. Lewin thoroughly researched, drew, and then painted all the 323 plates of the first edition. Because of the immense time and effort of painting of each plate, the first edition was limited to only 60 copies. Image, 8.5"W x 7"L.
