Nature's Protection Devices 1885 Antique Joseph Meyer Konversations German Engraved Natural History Chromolithograph

by PetitPoulailler

Here is a gorgeous engraved natural history chromolithograph gleaned from a discarded Joseph Meyer 1885 German Konversations natural history and encyclopedia reference. Featured is a brilliant still life, 'Schutzeinrichtungen' [Protection Devices], presenting a world of butterflies, buggies and all sort of entomology beauty set in a lovely forest with Latin names and German text.

This is a double page. The heavy paper is blank on its reverse and has a natural vertical fold where the paper was bound into the volume. The original tissue guard still nestles between the folded paper and so the beautiful buggies have remained wondrously bright and vibrant and the paper shows little of the expected tanning at 130+ years of age.

What a gorgeous paper to frame for your home decor ... perhaps you'll gift this to your favorite gardener or entomology buff? ... or perhaps these brilliant images will make their way into your art? Ideal for card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, jewelry creations, collage.

A wonderful addition to your ever-growing-yet-never-large-enough at-the-ready ephemera supply. The paper measures a grand 9.5" x 12" (24x30 cm), the fold is as noted before and the paper is clean and smooth. The chromolithography is strong and bold and the paper is without marks, tears, creases, or other folds.

You are purchasing an original 1885 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, well protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
