Tamarisk Gerbil – Original Hand Coloured Copper Engraving – Schreber 1775

Short Description

A rare and delightful hand-coloured copper engraving of the desert living Tamarisk Gerbil by D.R. Nitschmann for Johann Christian Daniel von Schreber (1739-1810) published as part of his classic work on mammals “Die Saughthiere in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen” published circa 1775.

Strong plate mark, paper size 28cm by 20cm. Engraving quality very fine with good strong original colouring. Very good condition.

Gerbils of course popular pets at one time … they have a habit of digging themselves into holes if let loose in the garden … so watch out for this fella.
