Antique bird prints in original hand-color from Johann Leonard (1666-1743) Frisch's "Vorstellung der Vogel Deutschlandes..." published in 1733. This is possibly the earliest publication on domestic birds in Europe. Frames are vinegar painted and framing materials are conservation quality. Each is approx.21" x 26" framed; all are in excellent condition except for the goose print, which has a significant repair (e-mail to discuss).
