Cassowary antique Bird Print by Goldsmith 1816

Title: The Cafsowary.

This antique Cassowary bird print from 1816 is a must-have for any collector of natural history prints.

The print is in good antiquarian condition, with some light browning to the paper and included passepartout.
This is a rare and collectible piece (Martinet del. schulp. Jn. Taylor) that would make a beautiful addition to any home or office.

Passepartout: 10.5 x 8.1 inches. 27 x 21 cm.
