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 Solnhofen limestones used in such german books' lithographic production, sometimes contained finely preserved fossils of the very creatures they illustrated and were responsible for the discovery of such species as Archaeopteryx.
