A collection of 56 pen and ink drawings on loose, onion skin leaves. Drawings range from about 1.5-by-2 inches to 7-by-9 inches, with most toward the larger end. A few leaves have small scuff marks at the corners, as though they've ben removed from a scrap book -- very near fine overall, suitable for display. Remarkably detailed, intricate, and accomplished drawings of all sorts of animals, including peacocks, a toucan (and other birds, including a drawing of a bird's skeleton), insects, turtles, and snakes -- even a tiger and a crocile in combat! Snakes are particularly interesting, as the artist continually practices their faces, and they become more and more detailed and, at times, a bit scary. The birds and insects are usually posed in tree leaves, adding botanical interest. Also includes drawings of famous men (Guy de la Brosee, Linne, Facon) in profile, surrounded by decorative borders and crests. N° de ref. de la librería D4291
