Primrose and Pimpernel
A lovely, detailed hand-colored botanical engraving, gleaned from an 1815 folio collection, 'Picture Book For The Use and Amusement of Youth', published by Friedrich Johann Justin Bertuch.
This listing includes 2 separate papers -
* a paper featuring detailed, hand-colored engravings of the Pimpernel and Primrose plants and flowers
* a 2-sided paper with text keyed and describing those engravings; one side in German, one in French
Each heavy paper measures approximately 8" x 9.5" (20x24 cm), clearly shows the plate marks, and has only light tanning, with no tears, creases, marks, or folds.
The engravings are wonderfully vivid and bright on quite heavy papers. The text page lighter in weight and the text is clear and strong.
A wonderful study to frame, fantastic to use in your art - tag and card creations, collage, decoupage.
You are purchasing original 1815 papers and they do not have watermarks. I will send these to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
