by Goldsmith, Oliver

Antique print of a Leopard, c1848.

 
Original hand-coloured steel engraving published in London circa 1848 by A. Fullarton and Company for “A History of the Earth and Animated Nature” by Oliver Goldsmith (1728-1774). Goldsmith compiled this work with the aim of bringing together all that was known about the planet earth, its plants, animals and human inhabitants. First published in 1774, it proved so popular as a source of reference on the natural world, that it was reissued with updates more than twenty times. The ongoing popularity of this work was attributable to the fine stylised hand-coloured illustrations - usually with uncoloured background so that the subject stands out clearly from the page.
