EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning hand-colored copperplate engraving depicts the Panther of the Ancients, also known as the Leopard (Panthera pardus), as it was captured in the natural history records of the early 19th century. The image was meticulously drawn by Charles Hamilton Smith from a specimen housed in the Hesse Cassel museum, and the intricate details were brought to life through the skilled hand of Thomas Landseer. The engraving is a part of Edward Griffiths' seminal work, "The Animal Kingdom" published by Baron Georges Cuvier in London in 1825. This work was a significant contribution to the field of natural history and zoology during the era, showcasing the most accurate and detailed illustrations of various species then known to man. The Panther of the Ancients is depicted in all its majesty and power, with its piercing gaze and muscular form. The intricate patterns on its fur are beautifully rendered, highlighting the animal's distinctive beauty. This image offers a glimpse into the past, transporting us back to a time when the natural world was a source of endless fascination and discovery.
