Kuhnert Wild Cat. Lydekker Royal Natural History lithograph c1896.

by Lydekker, Richard

A beautiful antique print of a Wild Cat c1896, with hare prey in its jaws.

 
Original colour-printed lithograph after the drawing by important German animal artist Wilhelm Friedrich Kuhnert (1865-1923) for a zoological encyclopedia Illustrirtes Tierleben (Illustrated Life of Animals) by Alfred Edmund Brehm (1829-1884). First published in Leipzig between 1864 and 1869, the work was republished in Austria circa 1896 as Brehm’s Tierleben (Life of Animals). This chromolithograph is from the English edition of the work, The Royal Natural History edited by Richard Lydekker B.A., F.G.S., F.Z.S., Etc. (sic.). Published circa 1894-6 by Frederick Warne and Company of London & New York, this fine chromolithograph has captured Kuhnert's love of lions. Kuhnert travelled widely and drew them in the wild, which was often difficult as he was not a hunter.
