SCHUBERT: "GREAT WHITE SHARK, HAMMERHEAD & SAWFISH" chromolithograph print
This original and very beautiful hand painted chromolithograph of sharks and sawfish is from "Naturgeschichte der Reptilien, Amphibien, Fische" (The Natural History of Reptiles, Amphibians and Fish) by the eminent German physician and naturalist Prof. Dr. Gotthilf Heinrich von Schubert [1780 -1860).
Published by Schreiber, Germany, in 1886, this wonderful folio sized illustration, with original centrefold on Whatman paper, is after drawings by the leading artists of the time.
