DESCRIPTION : Original hand colored lithograph from "Buffon en Estampes'. An album recognised as one of the rarities of 19th century natural history illustrations for children. The lithographed plates are by the famous French natural history illustrator Edouard Travies. The animals and birds are depicted in realistic handcolouring but, unusually, are shown against the delicately rendered uncoloured backgrounds. Edouard Traviès (1809-1876) was a French animal painter and illustrator, he specialized in painting birds, animals and insects, his paintings were exhibited regularly at the Salon of Paris between 1831 and 1866. Buffon, Georges Louis Marie Leclerc (1707-1788) influenced the separation of science from theology, even before Darwin's theory of evolution. He suggested that man and ape may be connected through a scientific, common ancestry. The "Histoire Naturelle" discuss the whole range of the animal, vegetable and mineral kingdoms. The coloring is meticulous and gives an additional dimension to the fine plates.
