More About This Item


Item Overview

Description: This hand-colored lithograph is from Leon Louis Vaillant's Mission Scientifique au Mexique et dans l'Amerique Centrale. The work was published in Paris by Imprimerie Nationale in 1874.

He was a professor of reptiles and fishes at the Paris Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle and "inherited responsibility for the then-largest collections of reptiles and fishes in the world" (Adler). Marie Firmin Bocourt combined zoological knowledge with great artistic qualities, and initiated this work.
