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).

Mount colour is as accurate as possible, but of course may show up differently on different computers.
Picture size is approximate, though overall mount size is pretty accurate.
