George Edwards Northern Cardinal


The cardinal, or red bird as Catesby referred to it in plate 38 of volume one of his The Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands (London, 1731-1743), is found in North and South America and is known for its distinctive red plumage. Edwards does not appear to have included the cardinal in his A Natural History of Uncommon Birds, although he probably copied it from Mark Catesby's original depiction made in the 1720s. The drawing is not numbered or inscribed in any way.
