Information

A beautifully colored and illustrated chromolithograph. It was printed by Cassell for Thomas Rymer Jones, Professor of Natural History and Comparative Anatomy in King's College, London.

Date

c.1870. This is an original antique print, not a reproduction.

Print method

Chromolithograph printed with vibrant colours. Chromolithography was invented in about 1830 and was the first true multi-color printing technique - previously color had to be hand painted. A printing stone was used for each color, so highly colorful prints such as these required many stones and a much skill in preparing them.

Condition

Good condition. The colors are fresh and bright.

Size

10 by 7 inches(25 by 18cm).
