The publisher was located at "8 rue Larrey, Pairs," in 1852.<BR><BR> "Zacharias Noterman (1813-1874), was a nineteenth century Belgian artist who studied painting and etching under his elder brother, Emmanuel Noterman (1808-1863). Both brothers established themselves as animal artists and exhibited their work in Belgium and at the Paris Salon. Emmanuel specialized in depictions of dogs while Zacharias Noterman's forte was the monkey. A popular genre in nineteenth century art was the 'Singeries'. Briefly these were paintings and etchings of monkeys partaking in human activities. They were often clad in telling costumes in order to comically 'ape' a specific action or occupation. Zacharias Noterman was highly successful within this genre". - Peters
