Heinrich Rudolf Schinz (1777-1861) a Swiss physician, Professor of Natural History and member of the Natural History Society of Zurich produced a series of popular illustrated books on natural history between 1824 and 1852. Carl Joseph Brodtmann (1787-1862) was one of the most accomplished Swiss lithographers of the day. This print typifies the rich detail, accuracy and beautiful composition of his style. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Natural History - Animals & Insects , Monkeys & Apes
