Birds: Le Pierre-Garin
Le Pierre-Garin (Buffon) 2/3 nature
Sterna Hirondo (Linee)
These beautiful etchings by Edouard Traviès are from his work,
"Les oiseaux les plus remarquables", published by V. Delarue in Paris, 1857.
The original hand coloring and natural backgrounds add to the artistic and ornitholgical value
of these prints done by various engravers such as: Annedouche, Fournier, Pardinel, and Oudet.
Many of the prints have the upper or lower margin widened.
The same paper was used so that it is hardly noticeable.
Prints are clean with hardly any spotting unless otherwise noted.
The page size is about 12.5 x 16 cm ( 4.9 x 6.3 ")
