Artwork for Louis Agassiz's 'Recherches sur les Poissons Fossiles'

Original artwork for Louis Agassiz's five volume work 'Recherches sur les Poissons Fossiles' (1833-1844). The watercolours and drawings of fossil fish, copied from palaeontological collections across Britain and Europe between 1831-1843, were Agassiz’s attempt to capture every species known at the time.
