4o (308 x 224 mm). 3 lithographed folding plates, including one hand-colored after Chauvin. Modern quarter morocco.
RARE separate or offprint edition of this paper on the Grizzly Bear, with actual size engravings of a Grizzly's skull and a reduced but striking depiction of a Grizzly Bear after Chauvin. This paper is presumably a separate printing from the Transactions of the Kaiserlich Leopoldino-Carolischen deutschen Akademie der Naturforscher Breslau and Bonn, volume 26 and was delivered to the Akademie on March 31, 1856.
