Beautifully detailed engraving of the Gyrfalcon - Falco rusticolus.

The Gyrfalcon (Falco rusticolus) is the largest of the falcon species. The gyrfalcon breeds on Arctic coasts and the islands of North America, Europe and Asia. It is mainly a resident there also, but some gyrfalcons disperse more widely after the breeding season or in winter. Its plumage varies with location, with birds being coloured from all-white to dark brown.

The size of the print: 9,8" x 6,7" (25 x 17 cm) including its border.
Printed in 1878, 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.
