This listing is for a vintage facsimile of a sketch drawing of three birds of Maranhao (Brazil). They were identified by the author of the drawings as Jaqu, Aracoan and Tinguara.

According to a later study of the sketch drawings, Jacu is the Rusty-margined Guan (Penelope superciliaris), Aracoan is the Buff-browed Chachalaca (Ortalis superciliaris), both are species of birds in the Cracidae family. Tinguara is identified as the Blue-backed Manakin, Chiroxiphia pareola, a small passerine bird.

This vintage plate depicts a drawing by Frei Cristovao de Lisboa in the 17th. century (1625-1631).

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.
