Common Pipistrelle Bat 1838 Victorian Sir William Jardine Antique Natural History Engraving, Pl 2

by PetitPoulailler

Gleaned from Sir William Jardine's 'Naturalist Library - Mammalia - Quadrupeds' 1838 volume, here is a sumptuous Victorian hand colored engraving, finely etched by Scottish painter and engraver William Home Lizars (1788-1859) and featuring -

Common Pipistrelle (Pipistrellus pipistrellus)

Look at that li'l smile! He's a happy bat! 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 image 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.
