Birds of prey are birds that hunt for food primarily on the wing, using their keen senses, especially vision. They are defined as any bird that hunts other animals. Their talons and beaks tend to be relatively large, powerful and adapted for tearing and/or piercing flesh. In most cases, the females are considerably larger than the males. Most eagles are larger than any other raptors apart from the vultures.
The size of the print: 12" x 9,6" (30,5 x 24,5 cm) including its border.
Printed in 1889, Bibliographisches Institut Leipzig, Germany, as an illustration for the 4th edition of "Meyers Konversations Lexikon".
The print is in good condition and the paper shows its age with a creamy patina, perfect for framing.
Concerning the age of the paper - cca. 120 years - some spots can be occured on the margin and the reverse side, but these do not effect the quality of the lithograph itself as it can be seen on the scan.
Please note, that by antique prints due to their age some imperfections are to be expected.
Please feel free to email us with any questions or request additional photos.
