My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the print,

Hullmandel & Walton published J. Gould and HC Richter prints in the first half of the 19th century (1830s - 1840's). In general their bird or 'Audubon' prints printed by Hullmandel & Walton sell for $225 - $280; however those with hummingbirds can sell for $500 - $700 each. You can, however, ask any price you please on an item you own, the key factor is finding a buyer at your asking price.

Here is a link for you with such prints, and there is a Hummingbird one being offered for $650:
