This is an antique engraving of flightless birds -- specifically, the ostrich, emu, cassowary, kiwi, and rhea. One panel shows an ostrich hunt. Ostriches may be flightless, but they can sure take flight!

This back-to-back engraving is gleaned from a German book published in 1895. Photos 1-3 show details from the print, while photos 4-5 show the two sides of the print.

As with all the plates and prints from this book, the illustrations are razor-sharp and well-defined. The plate has a nice patina.

This antique engraving is in very good condition. This is an original plate, not a reproduction! Bananastrudel sells only originals.

Sent to you in an acid-free sleeve with sturdy backing.
