~ Just When You Thought You've Seen Everything, SurrenderDorothy Offers Yet Another Mind-bending Natural History Illustration! ~
Check out this series of beautiful steel engravings from the turn of the 20th century. The fabulous minute details in this naturalist's study are totally amazing.
Printing of this quality and detail is a long lost art-form, I'm afraid. The engraving of steel plates for printing is an amazingly slow and time consuming process. Far too costly to pay an artisan to do when there are modern cameras to do the job. Still, it seems a pity.
'Mammoth And Deer Skeletons' are in wonderful condition, with crisp edges and corners with a lovely soft and even light tanning. Not too shabby at all for 103 year old paper!
This delightful series of engraved illustrations measures 6 1\/2" x 9" and is the Real Deal... not a scanned photocopy or a download.
SurrenderDorothy's amazing selection of antique and vintage ephemera is always the genuine article.

SurrenderDorothy. Classic Antique Ephemera.
Always something a little bit different.
