Anas dafila
A.
 
Chromolithograph from Magnus Von Wright's Svenska Foglar Efter Naturen Och Pa Stenritade, published in 1917-1929, printed by A. Bortzells, Stockholm.  Published in Stockholm from A. Bortzells in second edition between 1917 and 1929 and illustrated with 364 large  prints of birds, made by the brothers naturalists and designers Wilhem, Ferdinand and Marcus von Wright, with the collaboration of the designer Bror Halberg.  I presume this second edition rather than the first, published in 1828 - 38 due to paper type used. Page Size: mm. 375 x 270 sheet by  Wilhem von Wright, painter of still lifes, engraver and lithographer Finnish born in 1810 and died in 1887.  Magnus von Wright (1805-68) was the first taxidermist working with the vertebrate collections of Helsinki University.  Starting out as a taxidermist in the 1820's, he stuffed birds for Societas pro Flora et Fauna Fennica, the oldest scientific society in Finland, and in 1845, became taxidermist at  the university's zoological museum.Von Wright made several study journeys to Stockholm and St. Petersburg, and even wrote a short manual on how mount birds.  Though a skilful taxidermist, his reputation, like that of his two brothers, Wilhelm and Ferdinand,  rests on his skill as a zoological illustrator. In 1859 he published the first handbook on Finnish birds. He held the position as taxidemist at the University until his death in 1868 



Anas dafila (acute) male couple with settembrino plumage, commonly called common codon.
