Henderson old Bailey
Plate nr. 33
A colorful antique engraving featuring 3 tropical fish from the book: “The Animal Kingdom, arranged according to its organization, serving as a foundation for the natural history of animals: and an introduction to comparative anatomy”, with the plate number, (33) , title and publisher, ( G. Henderson 2 old Bailey London).
This hand colored engraving is dated 1836. The measurements of the paper are: 22.5 x 13 cm. The engraving is framed and has a cream colored matte. The measurements of the frame are 26 x 19,5 cms.
Except for some yellowing and spots here and there, the overall condition of this 178 year old engraving is good. In the back you can see how, in time, one of the colors bleached through the paper where the red paint for the fins was used. I have removed the scotch tape that was used on the back and it has been dry cleaned for preservation purposes.
Price: 39,95 euro (exclusive additional shipping costs)
