This scarce, originally hand-colored hummingbird lithograph is from Martial Etienne Mulsant’s Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux Mouche ou Colibris. The work was issued in parts betwen 1875 and 1879. The lithography was completed by Antoine Germain Bevalet and E. Mesplis. Each lithograph features brilliant original hand-coloring heightened with gum arabic. It was done very much in the style of John Gould’s superb work, and is considered just as beautiful.
