Mystery Finches

Posted by Alix on 20 December 2007

I bought this print from Bermondsey Antiques Market a few months ago, I don’t actually know anything about it, but a bit of Googling suggests it may be a John Cassin lithograph from an US Pacific Railroad Exploration and Survey booklet, which would date it to the mid 1800s. It might not be this at all though! Anyone know anything?
