Frederic Cuvier (1769-1832) & Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire (1772-1844); Hand-colored lithograph illustrated plate from Histoire Naturelle des Mammiferes, avec les figures originales.; Paris: 1824-42; Paper size: 12" x 18" This unusual publication of mammals was originally released in 72 parts (to be bound in 7 volumes) under the auspices of the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle of Paris. The animals were drawn from life generally at the zoo Jardin des Plantes in Paris. Most of the descriptions were by Cuvier, with Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire editing the work and offering periodic posts (indicating by his initials at the end of each post). The 2 last parts were modified and translucented the press by Cuvier's kid. A quarto edit was started in 1826, however ceased publication (with the 13th part) in July 1833. These are among a few of the most exquisitely rendered pictures of animals ever released. Cuvier has actually effectively brought each animal to life by his awesome skill for detail without forgetting the characteristics that give them character.
