Caption: Vivid colour lithograph for "Dr. Schubert's Naturgeschichte - Geologie, Mineralreich, Palaontologie". Published in Stuttgart by J.F. Shreiber. The palaeontology section by Dr. Friedrich Rolle. German lithographers dominated colour lithography with their high volume productions such as this book for Children. The late Jurassic Solnhofen limestones used to lithograph these German prints sometimes contained finely preserved fossils of the very epoch they illustrated. Note, for example, Archaeopteryx in the sky above - itself discovered in Solnhofen. Also featured are Rhamphorhynchus (5) Pterodactylus (4) Plesiosaurus (2) Teleosaurus (3) Ichthyosaurus. Note that earlier mistakes such as the fin outline of ichthyosaur are still perpetuated.
