Sir William Jardine

Sir William Jardine (1800-1874) was a prominent 19th century British
naturalist who spent much of his life compiling the most comprehensive record of animals to date. His published a series of books "The Naturalist Library". The work is divided in to four main sections - Birds, Mammals, BInsects and Fish. To illustrate his monumental work, Jardine commissioned many of Britain's finest wildlife artists and illustrators to create the drawings from which the engravings were made. Among the artists who contributed to this massive work was Edward Lear.

William Home Lizars was Edinburgh's leading engraver who not only worked on Jardine's monumnental project but was also chosen by Audubon for his "Birds of America".
