Felis Leo - Johann Matthäus Bechstein

A picture from the 8-volume series by Johann Bechstein, ‘Getreue Abbildungen Naturhistorischer Gegenstände’ (Realistic Pictures from Natural History), issued between 1795 and 1807. Seven of those volumes are available from the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg. (click through on a volume – band – then on anything below ‘Inhalt’, and then on ‘Vorschau’ for thumbnail pages.)
