Edwards Bat- Hand-Colored Engraving

This authentic hand-colored engraving is salvaged from the pages of Charles D'Orbigny's landmark work, "Dictionnaire Universal d' Histoire Naturelle" or "Universal Dictionary of Natural History" published in Lyon, France by R. Tanuer. Revolutionary for its time, this iconic work drew distinguished artists from across the map to contribute a one-of-a-kind natural history inspired bookplate for its pages.

This bat illustration by French-born lithographer Edouard Travies features an "Edwards Bat" in beautiful detail. Just look at that stunning wingspan! Not to mention, each print neatly lays out the species, genus and gender of each mammal illustration in both French and Latin. How cool! 

A collection of these nearly 200-year old prints would make a fantastic addition to your home. 

Condition: Age appropriate wear. Paper toning in accordance with the print's age. Marks/stains as per photo. Wear around the edges and minor paper loss might be present in some prints. Please refer to each print's photo to get a better understanding of the condition. 

Year: c.1837 - 184 years old

Size: 11.0" x 7.25" (28cm x 18cm)
