BOURKE'S PARRAKEET

 Engraved by Benjamin Fawcett after A.F.Lydon

A fine original antique print of Bourke's Parakeet or Bourke's Parrot,
 Psittacus bourki, a native of Australia.

A fine lithographed plate from Greene's definitive guide for Victorian parrot keepers, exhibiting an exquisite blend of colour printing with added hand colour, heightened in places with gum arabic. The original colours remain bright and fresh. A wonderful print for framing and display.

Fine, virtually unmarked condition.
