He made natural history available to all levels of Victorian society by editing and issuing the hugely popular 40 volumes of "The Naturalist's Library" (1833-1842) with hand colored wood engravings and descriptions of all vertebrate species divided into 4 sections: mammals, birds, fish and insects, each prepared by a leading naturalist. Jardine commissioned experts throughout Europe to write individual volumes on their fields of animal studies. But perhaps the greatest accomplishment of this nine-year undertaking was that each book contained at least thirty splendid engravings by W. H. Lizars. These engravings - some introducing newly discovered species, others portraying now extinct animals have for over a century and a half been considered to be among the finest pictorial representations of their kind. The engravings were always colored by artists before publication and only the subject was hand-colored leaving the background illustration as the original black engraving.MORE GENUINE ANTIQUE PRINTS
