A collector's appreciation by 'Jethro', bibliography and five appendices. The book offers a unique insight into the extensive collection of prints and proofs produced by Archibald Thorburn, one of Britain's best watercolour artists, particularly known for his pictures of birds and mammals placed in harmonious landscapes. Scottish artist and bird illustrator, painting mostly in watercolour. His first education was at Dalkeith and in Edinburgh, after which he was sent to the newly founded St John's Wood School of Art in London. He regularly visited Scotland to sketch birds in the wild, his favourite haunt being the Forest of Gaick near Kingussie in Invernesshire. His widely reproduced images of British wildlife, with their evocative and dramatic backgrounds, are enjoyed as much today as they were by sportsmen and birdlovers of a century ago. S4.
