Original, beautifully detailed antique engraving of bears.

The Sloth Bear, Melursus ursinus, also known as the Lip Bear, is a mammal of the family Ursidae which is native to the lowland forests of India, Nepal,Pakistan, Bhutan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. The Sloth Bear is the only bear species classified in genus Melursus.

The artist is F. Specht.

The size of the print: 9,8" x 6,7" (25 x 17 cm) including its border.
Published in Leipzig Germany 1892, as an illustration for "Brehm's Tierleben".

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

Concerning the age of the paper - cca. 120 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.
