1926 CATBIRD Book-Plate Illustration in Full Color

From The Nature Library of Birds, Illustrated by R.E. Todhunter

Outstanding book-plate lithograph illustration of the Catbird, by R.E. Todhunter. Highly detailed, with bright and vibrant colors. The back side of this book-plate, is an illustration of The Brown Thrasher... I chose to feature the Catbird side based on my personal preference, but both sides are equally beautiful. This illustration came from The Nature Library of Birds, Selected from the writings of Neltje Blanchan, author of "Bird Neighbors," "Birds That Hunt and Are Hunted" (Game Birds), "How to Attract the Birds," and "Birds Every Child Should Know." Published by Doubleday, Page & Company in 1926. The page measures appx. 5 3/4" Wide by 9" Tall.

No Rips, Very Minor Edge Tears, No Holes, No Stains, Very Light Foxing on Thrasher Side, No Soiling, No Writing, and some Slight Discoloration along the page Edges. NOTE: The Brown Thrasher side has some noticeable foxing spots in the illustration border area... Only Very Slightly visible on the Catbird side.
