1760 De Buffon Antique Bird Print of The Chevalier Bird or Sandpiper

Cartographer : Georges-Louis Comte de Buffon

This fine exquisitely hand coloured original antique Ornithological Bird print was published in Histoire naturelle, générale et particulière by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon in 1760.
The original hand colouring on these particular prints is spectacular, some of the best I have seen to date.
