A facsimile of a drawing of a large tree from Maranhao (Brazil). The illustration was drawn by Frei Cristovao de Lisboa while he was in Brazil as a missionary (1625-1631) and he identified it as Cuiite. It was part of the manuscript "Historia dos animais e árvores de Maranhao" , published in 1967 in Lisboa, Portugal.
Drawing in pencil and covered in ink. This facsimile print is from the 1967 Portuguese edition.
Size: approx. 9" by 12"
In excellent condition. It is printed on thick paper. The uneven borders and darker areas that you see are in the original drawing that is reproduced in this vintage facsimile.
This is the actual page from a 1967 book, not a reproduction.
Sent to you in a flat envelope protected with a cello sleeve and cardboard.
