8Pcs Lorenz Oken ANTIQUE HAND-COLORED LITHOGRAPHS NATURAL HISTORY 1833-1843 Ornithology Mammals Frogs Reptiles Amphibians Eggs Birds Snakes Turtles


Details: This group of eight antique, hand-colored lithographs served as illustrations in a mid-19th century natural history book, "Allgemeine Naturgeschicte, VI, Zoologie," by Lorenz Oken (ne Okenfuss, 1779-1851) and published over the decade 1833 to 1843, a German transcendental naturalist, philosopher, and physician. All of these plates are closely observed, faithful depictions of a variety of reptiles, amphibians, birds, and mammals and are quite striking, with vivid, detailed coloration. The lithographers credited are St. Schillinger and Anst. V. C. Schach of Stuttgart. Some of the plates may be from a different, complementary work as they do not all bear the Oken citation along the bottom border. The plates measure approximately 10.75" x 13.25".
Condition / Notes: These plates show beautifully with strong lines and bright, unfaded coloration. Some of the plates show a small amount of scattered foxing/toning/marking and some show some edge wear.
