  • Tasmanian Thylacine – Lydekker – 1896

    Tasmanian Thylacine – Lydekker – 1896

    Original wood cut print of the Tasmanian Thylacine from Richard Lydekker’s superb work on Marsupials.

    Lydekker identified the need for a reassessment of Australian Marsupials given that Gould’s magnificent work was even by then extremely rare and costly and that a number of “new” marsupials had since been dicovered.

    One of a few collectable 19th Century Thylacine images. The poor creature was already very scarce by the time this work was published.

    Framed in gilt within cream mat with black inner core.

    Voyager also have a good copy of the entire Lydekker work … search Lydekker ….
