Le Toulou. Le Tait-sou
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.
