Caption: Predatory Megalosaurus (foreground) and Laelaps (background, now Dryptosaurus). Two of the first dinosaurs discovered in Europe and the US respectively. 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 print these German texts sometimes contained finely preserved fossil remains of the very epoch they illustrated here!.
