Antique Original Grandville Signed French Engraving 'Grim Reaper' 1842.

From the pen of French caricaturist JJ Grandville comes this wonderful and rare hand colored engraving from the original 1842 First Edition of 'Scenes de la Vie Privee et Publique des Animaux' (Scenes from the public and private life of animals).

It features a large menacing Eagle with a scythe in his beak. He stands atop a tall rock and stares intently at a small dead bird. A graphic and confronting yet very moving illustration.

Signed lower left it is printed in Paris by Brugnot and bears the legend in French 'And at that moment the blood froze in my veins'.

Measuring 7" x 10 1/4" there is some all-over age yellowing but no stains or tears. The antique condition is very good.
