The item you are buying is a scarce sepia-toned photographic print, "The Water Hole (Eland?)." This authentic photographic print (Rotogravure) was taken in the 1920s on two trips to Kenya and the Serengeti and is one of 27 fabulous close ups printed as full plate images from a great old book.

Other images include elephants, zebra, water buck, vultures, giraffes, buffalo, lions, wart hogs, rhino, wildebeests, elands and impala, giraffes, hyenas and jackals, and wild hunting dogs in their natural habitats. The soft off white paper measures 11-7/8 x 9-3/4 and the images measure 9 x 6-5/8 inches. Conditions vary but all images are clean and clear--off white borders have some foxing (small rust colored spots). Top or left edge of print has paper residue from being carefully removed from book by hand--they have not been cut out.

This image is also available matted and framed in archival museum grade materials. 4 ply eggshell matting is an additional $17.50 for a 14 x 18 inch mat. Framing and matting in a 1" black matte finish metal frame with plexiglas is an additional $57.50.

This is a great image ready for matting and framing! A great gift--extremely unusual and from a limited edition--for the animal lover in your life!
