Caption

Vivid colour lithograph for "Dr. Schubert's Naturgeschichte - Geologie, Mineralreich, Palaontologie". Published 1888 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 limestone blocks used to lithograph these German prints sometimes contained finely preserved fossils of the very animals they illustrated. Note, for example, Archaeopteryx in the sky above - itself discovered in Solnhofen and Rhamphorhynchus on the rock left in foreground. Indeed the first discovery of these delicate animals is owed largely to the use of these fine-grained rocks in lithographic printing.
