Vogt & Specht

These first two engravings of lemurs are by Friedrich Specht and are from: Carl Vogt and Friedrich Specht. The Natural History of Animals. Trans. George G. Chisholm. (NY: D. Appleton & Co., 1888). Volume 1, p. 81.

Each of the two images at right links to a 1024 pixel wide reduced-size JPEG version of the image. Here are links to the full-resolution scans:

These are scans done by my husband, Dr. David M. MacMillan, from a copy of the book that we own. The original book is in the public domain in the US due to the expiration of all possible copyright. We place these scans in the public domain as well.

Previous versions of these scans (from a much older version of this website) were picked up by Wikimedia Commons ("Pygmy Mouse Lemur (Microcebus myoxinus)" at http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dwarf_Lemur.jpg and "Ring-tailed Lemur (Lemur catta)" at http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:RingTailed_Lemur.jpg). The present images are derived from the same original scans, but they are higher resolution.

Inmates of My House

The images of "Tommy" and "Pearlie" are illustrations by Theo. Carreras from the book Inmates of My House and Garden by Eliza Elder Brightwen (NY: MacMillan and Co., 1895).

Each of the images at left links to a full-resolution version of the illustration.

The digitization of this book from which these images are taken was done by Microsoft from the University of California at Los Angeles library copy. It is available online on The Internet Archive at http://archive.org/details/inmatesofmyhouse00brigiala

The images presented here were cropped from the full-scanning-resolution "raw" JPEG2000 files.

This book is in the public domain in the US due to the expiration of all possible copyright. Its digitization and presentation at The Internet Archive is in the public domain, and these images as reproduced here remain in the public domain.

Note: The Singing Lemur does not advocate the keeping of lemurs as pets. They are wild creatures and should remain so.

Hassan

The two images at right are the front and back of a cigarette card issued by the American Tobacco Company under their Hassan brand, circa 1910. It is from their series T29 of various animals.

The artist may be excused from the charge of having drawn the tail of this animal too short. If you were to draw a ring-tailed lemur's tail at its correct length, nobody would believe you!
