Historical Illustrations - Animals

Lydekker's Royal Natural History

This collection of animal prints was originally printed in Richard Lydekker's Royal Natural History, published in 1894.  These early reprints are from the Library of Natural History, a six volume set from Sallfield Publishing, printed in 1901.  Images are by several artists, mostly by P. J. Smit, W. Kuhnert, and others.  All are chromolithographs and are 5.25 x 8 inches plus margins. Titles are printed below the image area on the print margin. All prints are in good condition with no tears, stains, or other damage.
