Issued 1854, Paris by Chardon.
Charming antique mid-19th century engraved (likely etched) print which visually displays a taxonomy of natural history and biology in a manner based upon the biological sceintific work of the great George Cuvier.
With original hand color and gum arabic which greatly adds to the look of age and appeal of this antique print.
Minor light toning, but overall clean, lovely example. Utterly unlike anything modern or newly printed, the visual patina of time is distinctive to this printed image in a manner likely not well captured by a digital scan.
Sheet measures c. 11 3/8 x 7 3/8".
Printed area measures c. 9" x 6".
