More About This Item


Item Overview

Description: This exceedingly scarce lithograph is from Anatole Nikolaevich de Demmidoff (Demidov)'s work Voyage Dans La Russie Meridionale & La Crimee par la Hongrie, la Valachie & la Moldavie. It was published in Paris by Gihaut Freres between 1842 and 1848 on India paper. The artist was Denis Auguste Raffet. The work focused on the natural history of Russia and featured images of fish, mammals, birds, snakes, mushrooms, and shells.

.Demidov's father sponsored Anatole's scientific expedition through Russia and Crimea for half a million francs. Frederic Le Play led the expedition, and Jean Janin was brought for an official account to help Anatole regain favor with the Tsar who was upset with his settlement in France. While the work was dedicated to the Tsar, the team being primarily French did not help Demidov gain favor.
