Here's a fine little original antique engraving from Germany from back in 1905 of a sweet little White-tipped Sicklebill (Eutoxeres aquila) a species of hummingbird in the Trochilidae family. It is found in Costa Rica and Panama of Central America, and Colombia, Ecuador, and far northern Peru. There is also a single recent record from Mérida in Venezuela.
Its natural habitat is the undergrowth of subtropical or tropical humid lowland or montane forest. Its curved bill helps it reach nectar deep in its favorite flower.

'White-tipped Sicklebi' measures 5.25" x 5" overall. It's engraved on heavy paper and it's printed on the reverse side. This cute little guy is in glorious condition captured in classic crisp basic black and creamy ecru white. This is one of the most exquisitely detailed antique illustrations you'll ever see!
This fabulous smaller size illustration is perfect.; smooth and flat with firm edges and square corners and almost no tanning at all... remarkable condition for 106 year old paper

Matted, framed and displayed in a gallery grouping, these pretty old vintage natural history book prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last photos are to show how this might look when it's framed. Your vintage print will come unframed and unmatted.)
