Vintage facsimile of a sketch drawing of Tamiatan, a bird identified as Nyctanassa violacea, Yellow-crowned Night Heron, a small heron that is found throughout a large part of the Americas, especially in warmer coastal regions.

This vintage plate depicts a drawing by Frei Cristovao de Lisboa in the 17t. century (1625-1631) while he was in Brazil as a missionary. 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 archive published a study about the work of Frei Cristovao that included facsimile copies of his drawings. These prints were 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"

The facsimile is 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.
