Administrative HistoryFrom the name of the species, the style of drawing and label, this drawing may be among the earliest batches of specimens to be drawn. The French naturalist Georges Cuvier had originally planned a work on fossil fish but had been so impressed by the work of Louis Agassiz's artists that he turned his work over to Agassiz for him to continue.
