Full Set: 21 George Edwards Watercolor Prints


The reproductions of the 21 George Edwards' ornithological watercolors, c. 1733, come from a larger portfolio originally composed of 48 drawings, once owned by John Drayton.  Such works, completed 10 years before the published etchings of the artist (known as the father of British ornithology), are the oldest of their type to survive in America.  In addition to their age and rarity, the watercolors are significant, as they demonstrate a close connection between Drayton and Edwards, linking Drayton to the European intellectual community of the 18th century.
