Beautifully detailed engraving of the Egyptian Mongoose - Herpestes ichneumon.

The Egyptian Mongoose or Ichneumon (Herpestes ichneumon) is a species of mongoose. This mongoose may be found in Egypt, Spain, Portugal, Israel, and most of sub-Saharan Africa, except for central Zaire, western South Africa, and Namibia. It prefers to live in forests, savanna, or scrub, never far from water.

The size of the print: 9,8" x 6,7" (25 x 17 cm) including its border.
Printed in 1877, Bibliographisches Institut Leipzig Germany, as an illustration for the second edition of "Brehm's Tierleben".

The print is in good condition, the paper shows its age with creamy patina, perfect for framing.

Concerning the age of the paper - cca. 135 years - some spots can be occured on the margin and the reverse side, but these do not effect the quality of the print itself as it can be seen on the scan.

Please note, that by antique prints due to their age some imperfections are to be expected.
