$7.00 – $14.00
“Giraffes” is a full page image from a small book published in 1858 by George Routledge & Sons, entitled “A Visit To The Zoological Gardens” written by Frederica Graham and containing some 20 illustrations by Harrison Weir. Good clean copies of this edition are now rather rare, but we are lucky to have a good copy in our collection. A lovely example of early engraving, these images would make an excellent historical collection for the naturalist or zoologist. As the original printed images are however, relatively small, we are limited to how large we can take them; but they reproduce comfortably and admirably in both A4 and A3 sizing options.
