Microscopical Objects in the Animal Kingdom Magnified

(Hydra or Polypes, Wheel Insects, Anamalculoes)

Issued c.1795-8, London

Fascinating antique engraved print.

Issued on period paper which shows signs of age but is still supple and well preserved.

In Fair/ Average [or better] condition: Sheet shows signs of age. This includes mostly scattered spotting, soiling and foxing, some dampstaining as seen; still the engraving overall remains quite attractive and would look great displayed.

A picture is worth a thousand words. The zoomable scan is a major part of the item description. Please examine closely, as what you see is what we will send you. [note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.]

Great image entirely worthy of an album, gift-giving or hanging for display. A depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.

Sheet measures c.  14 1/2" H x  8 7/8" W.

Printed area measures c. 12 7/8" H x  7 3/4" W
