Goldfuss Animal and Insect Prints

The "Naturalist Atlas" by Georg August Goldfuss(Bayreuth 1782 - 1848 Bonn). This extra large-size collection of lithographs of spectacular modern coloring depicting animals, birds, reptiles, fish, etc. published in Duesseldorf, at Arnz from 1824 -1842, was issued over this long period of time inserial parts of twenty prints each per annum. There are no officially bound copies. And, as always when so much time passes, few copies will have been completed with all 454 prints. Subscribers may have died, lost interest, run out of money or may have had any other reason to discontinue collecting this work. And loose pages, especially when so large, have a tendency to get in the way or create problems of storage. Many have been folded to handy size, rolled up or simply lost. This makes these decorative oversize prints rare and sought. Here is an exerpt of our stock. Please ask us if you are looking for special animals.

Prints have watermark: J. Waterman. The prints are more beautiful than the photos and scans below.

Our prints are in very nice condition. However they show some signs of age, such as general age toning, a few non-disturbing wrinkles, some minor spotting or other little blemishes. A few have small repaired tears in margins. Any major flaw will be individually mentioned.

Size of page: ca 45.5 x 58 cm ( 17.9 x 23 " )
