Great Auck (Extinct)

27 x 19 cm (10.6 x 7.4 inches).

Der Riesenalk
Were found from Spain to Canada. Was ~85cm (33 in) tall. Feathers were highly prized. Became extinct in 1844 due to hunting.

This antique lithograph was made in about 1910 and is in excellent condition. It is from a rare set of collecting cards about dinosaurs, prehistoric animals and strange animals, Tiere der Urwelt (animals of the prehistoric world) by Heinrich Harder. On the back is text about the animal by the naturalist Wilhelm Bolsche. They remain some of the most intriguing images of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals and are still referred to. Harder is well known for his murals of extinct creatures at Berlin Zoo, and was art professor at Berlin University.
