'The Magellanic Vulture, or Condor'
Ornithological study of a condor, presumably the Andean Condor (Vultur gryphus), shown in a coastal landscape devouring a young seal. Plate 1 from Museum Leverianum containing select specimens from the museum of the late Sir Ashton Lever...by George Shaw (published by James Parkinson, 1792). The accompanying text states of the original specimen that: "It was brought from the Straits of Magellan, and the circumstance of its not having the least appearance of a comb on the head...incline me to suppose it a young bird, and most probably a female". The plate is inscribed: "Reinagle delt. Skelton sculpt. VULTUR MAGELLANICUS. THE GREAT MAGELLANIC VULTURE, OR CONDOR. Pubd. as the Act directs Jany.1 1791 by J.Parkinson. Leverian Museum".
Original: copperplate engraving. 1791
