About This Item

Stuttgart, Germany, 1843. Very good condition. A beautiful image of a lyre bird, the bird in a striking pose, almost naive in lovely muted colors, with surrounding habitat in black & white. Printed for a German natural history magazine published in a somewhat larger & squarer format than usual. "Lith. Anst. v. C. Schach in Stuttgart" at the bottom. With an early nonsense fable handwritten (in English) on the verso in pencil, "The Fable of the Nashorn [rhino] and the chese" (sic), with the moral "Be contented with your chese ...". 7 x 9" image size. 8 x 10" page size.
