Here is a gorgeous natural history-hand colored engraving gleaned from Sir William Jardine's 1833 Naturalist Library 1833 Ornithology volume featuring -
Delalandii Humming Bird [Trochilus Delalandii].
Blank on its reverse, the heavy paper is top-tipped in gold and measures approx 4" x 6.625" (10x17 cm). The protective tissue guard is here but has become detached. The paper shows gentle foxing to betray its 180+ years. The edges are clean and clear and there are no tears, folds, creases, or marks. A beautiful subject to frame or use in your art.
You are purchasing an original 1833 engraving and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
