16.5 x 14 inches, original colour, lithographs. Plate 44. Bull.
Karl Joseph Brodtmann (1787-1862) was one of the most accomplished lithographers of his day, as well as a printseller and bookseller who lived in Zurich and Schaffhausen, Switzerland. His natural history lithographs include Heinrich Rudolf Schinz’s natural history volumes on reptiles and birds, published in the early 1830s. Brodtmann also produced the these folio natural history lithographs, probably also in the 1830s, as ‘Naturhistorische Bilder Gallerie aus dem Theirreiche’. Each of the illustrations sensitively rendered with attention to scientific detail. These are also early examples of lithographic printing, which had been introduced by German inventor Alois Senefelder in the 1790s. Nissen ZBI (1978) 3672.
