Sydenham Edwards Cynographia Britannica Dogs 1800 Antique Engraved Plate TERRIER
1800. From the estate of BEVERLY HAYES (who was a co-founder and longtime member of the Skye Terrier Club of Southern California) comes an original engraved hand colored plate from the book on dog breeds by Sydenham Endwards entitled Cynographia Britannica, published in 1800. The original book is incredibly rare and consists of 12 original hand colored engravings but you are only bidding on the chapter entitled "Canis Terrarius - The Terrier". This is the actual complete chapter as it was removed from an original 1800 copy of the book and consists of 8 loose pages with the engraved dog plate being on the first page. The actual engraved colored plate part is in beautiful condition but there are other areas that show some age spots and foxing; not bad considering the age of the book. There are no tears or holes in any of the pages (other than obviously, the spine where it was removed from the book). There is some light penciling on one of the non-illustrated pages describing the origin of the engraving. The pages measure around 13.125"x10.125" and Beverly had kept them stored in the sturdy folio that you see in the pictures. She obtained this many years ago from a dealer in England who she frequently purchased from. Thank you as always for bidding. FREE Shipping!
