German Wood Engraving QMB Free Clipart Image Site

Tasmanian Devil in a Hen House
Freidrich Specht
Beasts and Birds in Pictures and Words was published in 1891 by McLaughlin Bros. In it you will find over 100 illustrations in the genre of wood engravings created by several German engravers, including brothers Friedrich and August Specht, along with descriptions of as least as many land and sea animals, birds and reptiles. A copy of this book, despite the wear from use over the years, is not only a fascinating browse for the animal afficionado and book collector, but would look well on a coffee table and most likely become a topic of conversation. A copy of Beasts and Birds in Pictures and Words is currently offered for purchased at

Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
