This magnificent sourcebook of animal illustrations, meticulously reproduced from cuts taken from rare eighteenth-century publications, features a wondrous panorama of the animal kingdom -- from long-whiskered rabbits and stately reindeer to plumed pigeons, spiny-finned fish, and magnificently patterned conchs.
A comprehensive volume containing more than 600 accurately detailed reproductions of copperplate engravings, this collection depicts the full spectrum of the animal world. In addition to a broad sampling of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, crustaceans, and insects, the editor has also included a small but choice selection of plant specimens. Captions identify individual illustrations and a complete index provides users with immediate access to individual subjects.
Reproduced directly from rare nineteenth-century sources, this extensive collection of royalty-free illustrations will prove extremely useful to graphic designers, illustrators, and craftspeople looking for material that adds immediate interest and impact to any project.
