Green Hummingbird and Purple-throated Hummingbird

25 x 15 cm (10 x 6 inches).
Le Soui-manga vert dore, a longue queue. Le soui-manag a gorge pourpre

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 and embellished with flourishes of metallic gold paint. 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.
