A breathtaking hand-coloured lithograph of the safeguard lizard of Surinam, published in London in 1828. From A Natural History, General and Particular, by George Louis Le Clerc, Count of buffon, and translated from the French by William Smellie.

This rare print (full print shown in photo 2) is over 180 years old and is in very good condition for its age. Faint impressions of the text page opposite the print are visible but do not diminish the stunning visual effect of this piece. Blank on the back. Frame and give as a very special gift.
