Heinrich Rudolf Schinz and Karl Joseph Brodtmann animal prints


Karl Joseph Brodtmann (1787-1862) was an Swiss artist and lithographer who specialised in illustrating animals and birds, remaining faithful to the scientific accuracy required. Some of these animals are really extraordinary - and a number must surely no longer exist.


Most of the prints have a little foxing, but are generally in very good condition for their age. They are described in both German and French and we've made a stab at a generic term for each print. These are taken from the Natural History and Images of Mammals, by Swiss physician and naturalist Heinrich Rudolf Schinz (1777-1861), and are dated 1824.


The print size on all is 8" x 12" (203 x 305mm), cream mounted size: 12" x 16" (305 x 406mm). 

Those marked with *VM are not currently physically mounted. We have suggested a suitable colour, but we will mount in a colour to suit you (within reason!). Please use our Order/Enquire form to request this and for any other queries.
