The natural history lithographs for Heinrich Rudolf Schinz’s natural history volumes on reptiles and birds, were the work of Karl Joseph Brodtmann (1787-1862). He was one of the most accomplished lithographers of his day, as well as a printseller and bookseller who lived in Zurich and Schaffhausen, Switzerland. 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) 3669.
