Item #230796

An interesting combination of exotic letterpress and color lithography. The text, printed in Javanese, deals with a big game hunt, and illustrated by four plates printed in delicate green, brown, red, and blue tints. They depict a campsite; the hunter and guide in dense cover, aiming at a tiger; the hunter holding his rifle as dogs flush out a wild boar; and two groups of hunters and guides, with one group carrying a recently killed deer.
