This auction is for a 1857 print from steel engraving,


Scene in a Brazilian Forest

It Shows:

This print was originally drawn to depict the plant and tree species in an area of Brazilian forest. A scene in a rain forest in the Sierra dos Orgaos (Organ Mountains), Brazil. It shows bush ropes hanging from the trees, various plants including Banesteria, smilax, servania, bignonia etc (see provenance). A party of hunters below at ground level. Drawn by H. G HIne and engraved by J. Bishop.

Provenance: History of the Vegetable Kingdom by William Rhind - Published 1857: Blackie and Son Glasgow Edinburgh and London.Keenlyside

William Rhind was a Scottish born (Inverlochy 1797 -1874) Scriptural geologist, botanist, doctor etc. History of the Vegetable Kingdom - Embracing the Physiology of Plants, with Their Uses to Man and the Lower Animals, and Their Application in the Arts, Manufactures, and Domestic Ecomony. By William Rhind, Lecturer on Botany, Marischal College, Aberdeen, Scotland - This was a series he first produced in about 1841 and continued through eight later editions ending in 1877 after his death. There are subtle differences in the prints between the different editions. This particular print is from the 1857 editions.

The print overall measures 240mm x 150 mm (9.25 x 5.75 ") approx. There are pinhole binding marks to left edge of print. This print would look lovely mounted and framed .There is a little age yellowing especially to edges which is a feature of items of great age, and there may be some scattered but light, brown spotting ( foxing ) - please check the larger picture for condition.

This item will be shipped flat in a board backed envelope.

My use of the term "an original print/illustration" is a pictorial image made in a manner which allows it to be multiplied, and originating from the date stated. This includes examples of various methods of printmaking including engravings, etchings, woodcut etc. Many prints inevitably would have been originally bound in a book at some time as was this one.

"Info." in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text.

I accept: PAYPAL ,
UK postal orders, UK Cheques,
International money orders if in STERLING ( UK pounds)
For other acceptable payment options please feel free to ask
