Set of four lithographs with hand-coloring, probable later impressions, of hummingbirds signed "J. Gould and H.C Richter del. et lith." and "Hullmandel & Walton, Imp." Each has it's own title at the base. These are small folio thus the later designation. They are nicely framed and matted with the interior border of a velvet material. The colors are excellent and this is truly a very nice set. Sight: 14" X 9 1/2". Overall: 22 1/2" X 18".

This is a really nice pair of modified bearpaw snowshoes. Probably made in the early 20th century, they are missing the bindings. The catgut has been heavily varnished but is in very good condition. A previous owner, E.C. Wilbert has personalized these on the side of each in some type of marker. They measure 40 1/2" long X 18" wide.
