Henry J. Johnson “Plate III Quadrumana: Spectrum Tarsier, Slow Lemur, Aye Aye, Saki, Howling Monkey, Marmoset, Squirrel Monkey” New York, Selmar Hess, Ca. 1890. Image ca. 8 x 5 3/4. Chromolithograph. Very good condition.
Prints from a Natural History Series by Henry J. Johnson. These images are typical of the style of natural history prints that was popular at the turn of the century. Bright colors and dynamic images were a significant contrast to the more static images that had defined the genre in the preceeding decades. Neat piece of Americana.
