Red Jungle Fowl 1839 Victorian Sir William Jardine Naturalist Library Title Page Antique Engraving

by PetitPoulailler

From the 1839 Victorian works of Sir William Jardine on Ornithology, here is the Naturalist Library Vol. 14 gorgeous title page featuring ... Chickens!!

Here at Le Petit Poulailler, we particularly love when we come across chicken-ie things and we are really loving this find featuring the 'Red Jungle Fowl, or Bankiva Cock', found in the wild in India, China, the Philippines Islands, and even Hawaii.

The heavy paper is blank on its reverse, measures 4.125" x 6.5" (10x17 cm), and shows gentle all over tanning. This is the volume's 'Title Page' - 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 and gift or perhaps you'll use in your art - ideal for card and tag creations, collage; or keep in that growing scrap-book paper stash you love.

You are purchasing an original 1839 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
