Dr. Martin Wilckens; "Wall Panels, Natural History of Farm Pets"

Just back from our framer and this one is a beauty!  This is one of our favorite of the original first edition prints of Dr. Martin Wilckens' "Naturgeschichte der Hausthiere" (Natural History of Farm Pets).  They were published in Germany by Theodor Fischer in 1878.  This one is of a more anatomical nature and has vibrant colors.  While published in 1878, the colored prints feel somehow very modern, especially in the white shadowbox frames.   33" l., 33" w.  German, c. 1878 SOLD
