Monkeys & Lemurs. Lemur Mongoz. Le Mongous. Audebert c1780

by Audebert, Jean-Baptiste

Antique Print of Mongoose Lemur by Audebert c1800.

Rare stipple engraving with contemporary hand-colour by Jean-Baptiste Audebert (1759-1800) for Histoire Naturelle des Singes et des Makis Peintres d’apres Nature (Natural History of the Monkeys and Lemurs Painted after Nature) published in Paris circa 1800.

The pigmentation has oxidized to the reverse of the page, there is offsetting from the adjacent image and there is also considerable foxing and age discolouration of the page - all of which emphasize the age of this superb engraving.

The intaglio impression of the engraving is almost at the edge of the page. Page size is 545 x 360mm (approximately 21.5 x 14.25 inches)
