Sowerby - Shells

The Genera of Recent and Fossil Shells

George Brettingham Sowerby
Date:  1820 - 1834
Print Type: Hand Colored Engraving
Size:  5 1/2” x 8 3/4”
George Brettingham Sowerby (1788 - 1854), son of James Sowerby, was a British Naturalist, illustrator, and conchologist.  These lovely hand colored shell engravings are taken from The Genera of Recent and Fossil Shells for the use of Students in Conchology and Geology, began publication in London by James and G.B. Sowerby around 1821.  The work was published in 42 parts and sold both as “plain” engravings and “highly finished in Colours” per the cover to each section.  The work was published over 13 years and done solely by G.B. Sowerby after the death of his father James.
These genuine antique shell prints are over 170 years old and in wonderful condition, measuring 5.25” by 9” with plate lines present.  The paper is a soft cream from age toning with minimal spotting, none affecting the shells. The hand coloring is bright and paper edges still show binding marks.  A copy of the title page and descriptive text is available with each print.


Many of these prints are sold, however we offer Fine Art Reproductions of many of our antique  prints.
