This is one of the lovliest engravings we have seen of this group of mammals. Finely engraved on steel, with coloured animals enhanced with watercolour, against black and white background. This print is slightly foxed, but it seems to be more obvious on the scanned image than it is on the actual engraving. 10.5 x 6.75inches (approx. 26.5 x 17 cm)
