    D'Embarquement de la Nouvelle Annee 1896. Engraved poster.

  • Delightful engravings of a Pangolin by [ANON]
    [ANON]
    Delightful engravings of a Pangolin

    Two small, but charming, engravings of a Pangolin, or scaly anteater. One viewed from the rear (or above), and one curled in to a ball. Both on the same sheet of thick high quality cream paper. Deep impressions on each. They appear hand pressed. Perfect for framing. Image sizes: 60 x 100 mm and 60 x 40 mm respectively. Total sheet size: 275 x 145 mm (10¾ x 5¾ inches). Pangolins are mammals with large, protective keratin scales covering their skin. Nocturnal in nature, their diet consists of mainly ants and termites, which they capture using their very long tongues. Sadly, these delightful creatures are heavily under threat from poaching, and are the most trafficked mammals in the world.

He became widely known for his sporting prints and pictures as well as his watercolour hunting, coaching and shooting scenes.
