Itinera Varia Auctoris. : G. Edwards

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A curious and amusing frontispiece from George Edward's famous work, 'A Natural History of Uncommon Birds'. The map shows the author's voyages around England and to Europe between 1718 and 1730. However, the illustrations show creatures from further afield; at the top is the beak of the Egyptian Ibis; underneath are male and female stag beetles from Borneo; and at the bottom is the Least Hummingbird of Jamaica. George Edwards (1694 - 1773) is known as the father of British ornithology, and on the recommendation of Sir Hans Sloane, was appointed librarian to the Royal College of Physicians in London in 1733. Right margin with minor stitch-holes but image fine.
