Magnus von Wright started 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 a the university's zoological museum.

Von Wright; though a skilful taxidermist, his reputation like that of his two brothers, Wilhelm and Ferdinand, rests on his skill as a zoological illustrator.

These chromolithographs are from the second edition Svenska fåglar, efter naturen och på sten ritade, published c1920 and printed by A. Bortzells, Stockholm.
