The hand-colored Bird engravings shown on this page are from a folio published by George Graves in the early 1800s presenting "the history, with coloured representation, of every known species of British birds".  The series is titled British Ornithology.

The accompanying text provides both a general description and characteristics of each species.  A variety of songbirds, waterfowl, gamebirds and birds of prey are portrayed in these prints.

Graves, a fellow of the Linnean Society, also authored numerous other natural history texts.
