The Great Bat
Originally published in 'British Mammals' in 1920, this is a newer print. Lovely Thorburn lithographic reproduction book plate print taken from a disbound book printed in 1979. Printed on a slightly satiny paper with strong colouring. Most pages have text on the verso. As the prints are dense in colour, this does not show through.
All the prints in this collection are in excellent condition, having been hidden from the light for over 30 years. As you can see from the scan there is a rough edge to one side and a small grey margin around the main printed area. This is sufficient for matting (mounting).
Size of paper: 10 x 7.5 inches or 25 x 19 cm, approximately.
Size of printed area within the grey border: 8.5 x 6.8 inches or 22 x 17.5 cm, approximately.
Your print will be slipped inside a polythene bag with extra card or paper, then posted in a board-backed envelope, via airmail if overseas. All prints, whether antique, vintage or modern should be protected from exposure to direct sunlight.
