Would look nice matted to match the previous engraving. Selling for $15.00

I believe this is an original painting by G. Voltolina. The onion-skin attached is marked Plate 16. Geochelone carbonaria (morrocoy sabanero). I assume it’s image was used in a book published in 1978, but I do not know which one. Selling this beautiful 9” x 12” painting for $450.00

This pair of large (11” x 17.25”) plates are from an unknown German-language book. (The titles roughly translate to Tab C “the land shield toad of Carolina” and Tab XCIX “the African country shield toad”.) Tab C has a small pencil notation (8a??) which should be erasable. Captions in Latin and French. This very nicely colored pair would look great framed to match. Selling the two together for $35.00

Plate/page #14 from small book (5.25” x 7.25”), with 4 turtles, 2 lizards (or 1 salamander) and a crocodilian. This is temporarily but firmly affixed to a piece of cardboard for protection and I left it that way. Selling it for $10.00

Page from 1882 Punch Magazine, shrink-wrapped onto foam core. Punch, or The London Charivari was a British weekly magazine of humour and satire established in 1841 by Henry Mayhew and wood-engraver Ebenezer Landells. Historically, it was most influential in the 1840s and 1850s, when it helped to coin the term "cartoon" in its modern sense as a humorous illustration. Selling this page for $12.00
