Nepal Sun Bird. Nectarinia Nipalensis ~ a sumptuous hand colored Victorian engraving gleaned from Sir William Jardin's 1843 natural history ornithology reference.

Finely etched & published by William H. Lizars of Edinburgh, *the* engraver of his time. The top edge is gold tipped & the paper measures approx 4" x 6.625" (10 x 16.8 cm).

The page shows little tanning to betray its 165+ years ~ the edges are clean & clear & the corner tips have only just softened. There are no folds, creases, marks or tears on the paper.

An absolutely beautiful subject to frame or use in your art ~ it's a lovely antique paper.

*You are purchasing an original engraving from 1843 & it does not have a watermark. The protective marks appear only on these computer images*

I'll send you the pages flat & protected & by US First Class mail.
