    Description

    Joseph Wolf Elephant Folio Print: Felis Colocolo; Molina's Guiana Cat. This image is from J. Wolf and J. Smit's A Monograph of the Felidae or the Family of Cats, (London 1878-1883), which was written to document, and illustrate every existing cat species known at that time. Wolf was a praised and well-known animal illustrator; the prints he made of cats are considered to be masterpieces in many circles. This print features the Molina's Guiana Cat, native to the interior regions of Guiana. A rather humorous story accompanies the print; included with the print is a page of text which tells how the first stuffed specimen was transported across the country, by river, much to the many screaming and frightened native monkeys' chagrin.
