Antique print titled 'Noctua Minor Aucuparia'. This print depicts the little owl (Dutch: steenuil). The little owl (Athene noctua) is a bird that inhabits much of the temperate and warmer parts of Europe, Asia east to Korea, and North Africa. It was introduced into Britain at the end of the 19th century and into the South Island of New Zealand in the early 20th century.

This print originates from 'Nederlandsche Vogelen, volgens hunne huisdouding, aert, en eigenschappen beschreeven", Amsterdam, 1770-1829 by C. Nozeman, M. Houttuyn and J.C. Sepp. This is the most important and first study in the Netherlands of ornithology at that time. The birds are depicted as they are in life, said to be depicted close to life-sized and in their environment.

Condition: Good. General age-related toning. Few small stains. Minor wear and soiling. Please study image carefully.
