Birds and Animals or Child's Natural History Prints

Birds And Animals Cover Master.jpg

The vintage Birds and Animal or Child's Natural History color prints are beautiful, but we could find nothing explaining them.  Take the prints for what they are, lovely old vintage art prints of animals we have today, from the standpoint of the author Henry Davenport Northrop, from over 100 years ago. There are only a few of these very whimsical color prints, and since they were on good paper were very easy to reproduce.  But why they are in this book of realistic animals is a mystery.

The vintage book itself, Birds and Animals or Child's Natural History  is full of beautiful black and white engravings. The engravings are very realistic, a mirror to the images of the animals being described in the book.  The paper used to print the book is of poor quality and did not reproduce the prints well, so they are not included in this collection.

Birds and Animals or Child's Natural History has a copyright date of 1898, by J. R. Jones.  The author is Mr. Henry Davenport Northrop.
