Mice 1815 Austrian Biedermeier Natural History Antique Engravings

by PetitPoulailler

From an 1815 volume of Bertuch's 'Picture Book For The Use and Amusement of Youth', here is a gorgeous hand-colored engraving, 'Acht Affenarten', featuring 8 species of mice.

Iris Mouse [La Souris d'Iris]
Ural Mouse [La Souris d'Ural]
Garlic Mouse [La Souris d'Ail]
Onion Mouse [La Souris d'Oignons]
Common Mouse [La Souris Econome]
Russian Mouse [Le Leming de Russie]
Norwegian Mouse [Le Leming de Norvègue]
Social or Tulip Mouse [La Souris Sociale (ou de Tulipe)]

This listing includes 2 papers -
* a paper which features 8 hand-colored detailed engravings of various mice
* a second 2-sided descriptive text paper, in German and French

Each paper measures approximately 8" x 9.5" (20x24 cm). Plate marks can be seen clearly on both papers. Slight spotting and a light tanning is seen on both papers.

The hand-colored engravings are wonderfully vivid and bright on a quite heavy paper. The text paper is much lighter, but not tissue-y: the text is clear and strong. A lovely study to frame, fantastic to use in your art - tag and card creations, scrap-book page making, collage.

You are purchasing 2 original 1815 papers and they do not have watermarks. I will send these to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st class mail and include a copy of the book's Title Page with your purchase for provenance.
