This vintage illustration is just one example of old-school sketches that laid the foundation of our modern-day understanding of biodiversity. The illustrator's name was Beverly Morris, and he spent countless hours recording nature's finest specimens like this wild European duck. It was initially released in a British book in 1855, and we're now giving it the modern-day treatment via this ready-to-frame print as a tasteful addition to your abode.
Original print from British game birds and wildfowl. By Morris, Beverley Robinson; Fawcett, Benjamin, 1808-1893, engraver. London : Groombridge and Sons,1855. White border has been added to source print. Sourced from the Biodiversity Library.
