"Many animals were imported from Borneo, the Philippines, Surinam, Cape of Good Hope and even from Japan. During decades tracts were published giving a description of an animal to which a hand-coloured copperplate was added. Most of these were engraved by Simon Fokke after designs of Aert Schouman who made drawings after life animals" (Landwehr). - Gering gebräunt, teils wasserrandig; vereinzelt gering stockfleckig, vereinzelte Braunflecken.
