Description
M Travies / H. Gobin voor Buffon/Flourens - 37 handgekleurde gravures van vogels
Engraving - Plate signed - 1880

Nice set of 37 hand-coloured engravings of birds from 'oevres completes de Buffon, annotées par M. Flourens'. If you ask me, this is the Buffon set with the most beautiful illustrations.
Various types of birds:

- Stork
- Heron
- Hummingbird
- Hornbill.
- Swallow
- Gull
- Cockatoo
- Pigeons
- Owls
These engravings have some water damage. That means that the condition is only reasonable. The prints have water stains and discolourations and are sometimes tanned and have (some) damage to the drawing (but I have included this one anyway). The paper is not straight and smooth but a bit uneven.
But for a true enthusiast, they are still very nice images.

The edges were neatly cropped.
