Historic Overview

This antique color plate features a striking image of five varieties of woodland birds. The print comes from the book Bird Portraits In Color, Two Hundred Ninety-Five North American Species by Thomas S. Roberts, M.D. The book was copyrighted by The University of Minnesota in 1934 and printed and lithographed by The McGill Lithograph Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The book was published by The University of Minnesota Press. This color plate was illustrated by George Miksch Sutton in 1930.

This vintage print is Plate 51 showing five birds in their natural habitat. The birds represented are the Wood Pewee, Alder Flycatcher, Phoebe, Yellow-Breasted Flycatcher, and Least Flycatcher. The birds are illustrated at about one-half their actual size. The print is professionally matted in an 11” x 14” light green matte to setoff the beauty of the birds. Our vintage prints are shipped in a plastic sleeve between cardboard stiffeners to arrive in perfect condition.

Keep in mind, an antique print will never be “perfect” like a new print and there are sometimes tiny occasional spots and/or discoloring or aging. However, we only sell mint or almost mint prints and will not sell anything that we would not be proud to hang on our own walls!!!
