A facsimile of a drawing of a tree of Maranhao, Brazil by the priest Frei Cristovao de Lisboa (17th. Century). He gave it the name Amigua in Portuguese and he says that it is a tall tree with big fruits. The authors of the facsimile edition, who studied the original works, have not been able to identify this tree.

The original drawings, in pencil and covered in ink, are part of a manuscript "Historia dos animais e árvores de Maranhao" that is kept in an archive in Portugal.

In 1967, the arquive published a study about the work of Frei Cristovao that included facsimile copies of his drawings. This print was part of that 1967 facsimile edition.

A facsimile is a copy or reproduction of a manuscript or other item of historical value that is as true to the original source as possible. It differs from other forms of reproduction by attempting to replicate the source as accurately as possible in terms of scale, color, condition, and other material qualities.

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.
