AUTHENTIC 1800S COLORED ENGRAVING.

Colors are bright, black's nuances gorgeous, the engraving is very fine. The aspect is silky, on a thick paper. Original, not a copy.

This print is taken from the Dictionnaire Universel d'Histoire Naturelle, a publication directed by the french naturalist Charles Henry Dessalines d'Orbigny. This is the 1861 edition, with some 288 prints are assembled in three atlases. The engravings are hand-painted and varnished. The colours are brilliant, the drawing very fine, and te relief are very well rendered.
Volume I : Zoology - Humans, Mammals, Paleontology and Birds.
Volume II : Zoology - Reptiles, amphibians, fish
Volume III : Zoologie - botanic, molluscs, crustaceans

"With its 13 (subsequently 14) volumes of text and 3 volumes of prints, the Dictionnaire Universel d'Histoire Naturelle is one the great scientific works of the 19th century, and made the natural world accessible to an educated audience. The prints in the Dictionnaire d'Orbigny are among the best produced in this field during the 19th century, strikingly realistic thanks to their great precision and detail, and the beauty of the lines and colours. The apogee of scientific drawing." (Eric Baratay, Un théâtre des bêtes : les planches du Dictonnaire Universel d'Histoire Naturelle).
