    Description

    Joseph Wolf Elephant Folio Print: Felis Cervaria; The Siberian Lynx. This print comes from J. Wolf and J. Smit's A Monograph of the Felidae or the Family of Cats, (London 1878-1883). This book was made to chronicle, and illustrate, all the known cat species of the day. This cat is native to Northern Asia and some parts of the Ural Mountains. Wolf masterfully pictures the cat as it stands on a forested outcropping, the detail of the vegetation in contrast to the cat is remarkable; visible behind the cat is another Lynx who is almost faded into the rocks. Many consider Wolf's work on the cats to be his finest. This print is accompanied by one page of text which gives facts and observations about the cat.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
