This amazing antique print comes from a German version of GULLIVER'S TRAVELS dating from the 1890s. It shows Swift's hero, Gulliver scurrying away from two scary Brobdingnag giants in a wheat field. One giant holds a rather terrifying sickle.

The unique feature of this print is that it is HAND TINTED, as was common at the time with books with a small print run. That is an artist would 'color in' (with paint) the black and white outlines of the print.

Thus, this illustration is finely tinted in beautiful bright colors. The sky is bright blue and the giants wear red, and green. Unfortunately the paint on Gulliver is smudged, as is one of the flowers on the left side.

This would be perfect for framing and is in excellent vintage condition - considering it is over 100 years old. It measures 9.8 inches / 25 cm x 7 inches / 18 cm.
