Here is a handsome hand-colored engraving gleaned from Sir William Jardine's 'Naturalist Library' 1833 volume on ornithology featuring -
Golden-Green Humming Bird [Trochilus rasina]
The heavy paper, top edged in gold, is blank on its reverse, measures 4" x 6.625" (10x17 cm), and shows gentle all over tanning as the protective tissue guard remains safely attached. The paper is smooth and clean, the paper edges are clear and unmarked, with the corner tips only just softened.
The hand-coloring is bright and vivid and exact and there are no tears, folds, creases, or marks. A beautiful subject to frame and gift or perhaps you'll use in your art - card and tag creations, collage, keep in that growing scrapbook paper stash you love.
You are purchasing an original 1833 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
