Gleaned from Sir William Jardine's 1838 volume 'Naturalist Library - Mammalia - Quadrupeds', here is a sumptuous Victorian hand-colored engraving captioned -
The heavy paper is blank on its reverse, measures 4" x 6.5" (10x17 cm), and shows gentle all over tanning as the protective tissue guard is here 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 for your home decor, gift to your favorite naturalist or wildlife enthusiast. Perhaps you'll use in your art - card and tag creations, collage, keep in that ever-growing scrap-book paper stash you adore.
You are purchasing an original 1838 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
