Green Woodpecker 1850 Victorian Tallis Scriptures Antique Hand Colored Bird Engraving

by PetitPoulailler

Green Woodpecker

Here is a lovely hand-colored and finely detailed Victorian engraving gleaned from a 1850 folio edition of Tallis' Scripture Natural History For Youth. 'Tallis Scriptures Natural History' was an 8-volume 1850 English work devoted to the study with a religious slant and geared toward children. These were small volumes issued as serials or subscriptions.

The pages were bound by string which has long gone missing. The dating of '1850' comes from the volumes back-paper wrap which includes advertising for other items being offered by the publisher in the upcoming year - 1851.

The heavy paper is blank on its reverse, measures 5" X 7" (13x18 cm), and shows gentle tanning to betrays its 165+ years. The paper is clean, smooth, and the corners only slightly softened. There are no tears, folds, creases, or marks. A lovely image to frame, fantastic to use in your art - tag and card creations, scrap-book page making, collage.

You are purchasing an original 1850 engraving and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
