About the Original: The monograph describes and figures all the species of cat then known. As Elliot writes in the preface "Among the Families which constitute the Class Mammalia no more attractive one can be found than that of Felidae, as its members possess in the highest degree a beauty, both of form and colouring, most gratifying to the eye, and are also endowed with physical strength and weapons of offence not surpassed by any known creature now living upon the earth. The Family comprises not only the largest and most ferocious of the beasts of prey, but also the graceful little animal that delights to make its home within man's abode". The work was prompted by the need to resolve the confusion that had built up around the naming of the various species of felidae, particularly amongst the smaller cats. The examples shown here were collected by Elliot after visiting all the great museums and zoological societies on both sides of the Atlantic. This allowed him to make a comparative study of skeletons and skins and reduce the number of separate species by nearly a third. The resulting work was considered the definitive monograph on the cat family and is still the most beautiful work on the subject forming a fitting companion to Elliot's sumptuous ornithological folios.

Source of the original : This Heritage Facsimile Edition print is made from an extremely well-preserved early museum original subscription which has been cared for in the hands of this one owner only – Teylers Museum (the oldest museum of the Netherlands).

Museum Quality: The proofs of our prints are carefully compared and corrected with the originals and the final prints always have the original size. As a result, the naked eye is unable to distinguish the originals from the facsimile prints behind glass.

Durability: To ensure the durability, our facsimiles are printed on 268 g/m acid-free white-edged paper with archive inks. Each facsimile has it all: every incredibly fine line detail of every lithographic plate or engraving; every delicate brushstroke of every original ; even the subtle signs of character and patina the paper shows after 150 years.
