Tableau Pittoresque des Merveilles de la Nature.
17.25 x 23.25 in (43.815 x 59.055 cm)
This is a separate issue c.1840 Aristide Michel Perrot comparative chart illustrating the wonders of the nature. The chart depicts 58 different numerically identified natural wonders occurring throughout the world. A table, situated in the bottom quarter of the chart, bears the name, location, and a short description of each of the wonders. Some of the wonders include several extinct creatures, including a fossilized mammoth skeleton and an ichthyosaur, several caves, Niagara Falls, and a handful of animals, such as a giraffe, boa, and condor.
This chart was composed by Arisitide Michel Perrot and published by Maison Basset c. 1840. This is a separate issue edition of this chart. Smaller versions of this chart were published in atlases, but this is the only separate issue (and larger) example we have located, making this a very rare find.
