Flicker, 1897 Antique Colorized Bird Photograph Illustration

The Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus) is a medium-sized member of the woodpecker family. It is native to most of North America, parts of Central America, Cuba, the Cayman Islands, and is one of the few woodpecker species that migrate. There are over 100 common names for the Northern Flicker. Among them are: Yellowhammer, clape, gaffer woodpecker, harry-wicket, heigh-ho, wake-up, walk-up, wick-up, yarrup, and gawker bird. Many of these names are attempts at imitating some of its calls.

These pages are the real thing- not photo copies or digital files. They were rescued from a very damaged book- "Birds- Illustrated By Color Photography, Vol. I" from 1897. The book had been separated from it's binding , a few pages were ripped and some were missing, but those that remain are amazing examples of colorized photography illustration art in the 1890s.

The pages are yellowed from age, but only show slight wear and smudging, unless noted. Each page measures 7" X 9.5", and includes the full page, not just what was cut from the binding. This gives you a little extra when matting. And this is completely worthy of framing! These items will come shipped encased in a heavier poster board for protection.

As always, I will only charge you the actual price of shipping, so if you combine purchases or I have over quoted, I will refund you the difference back to your PayPal account.
