Scarce engraving, printed in red and hand finished. 250 x 190mm (9ž x 7˝").
A pink cockatoo, probably a Leadbeater's, sitting on a low stump. It was engraved by the Hungarian Samuel Czetter in the style of George Edwards. A fine example of early colour printing. Czetter (or Tzetter, 1769-1829) worked in Vienna and Moscow, primarily engraving portraits but also a series of illustrations of the defences of Vienna.
