Blue-Headed Bee-Eater And Red And Blue Bee-Eater

25 x 15 cm (10 x 6 inches).
Le Guepier rouge a tete bleue. Le Guepier marron et bleue

This antique lithograph was made in 1833 in Brussels for Daubenton and Buffon's epic natural history work.
It has original, hand painted colouring which is absolutely superb (on a par with the finest we've seen). The range of colours and precise brush strokes are entrancing. The lithograph is on one side, the other side is blank. The paper has a lovely aged, creamy white patina with some faint scattered foxing.
