About

Sketches of two types of extinct armoured fossil fish from the class Placodermi, active from the Silurian to Devonian periods. Side views of one whole fish and one head study, as if in life. Found loosely inserted in Recherches sur les poisons fosssiles...tome 1, by Louis Agassiz (Neuchatel, 1833-1843), pp.36-37. Agassiz's work was the first significant survey of fossil ichthyology and these rough sketches were probably made by someone using the book later in the 19th century.

Original: ink on paper. 19th century
