'Antilope Grimmii' [Common duiker antelope]
Zoological study of a male antelope from Africa, probably the Common duiker Sylvicapra grimmia, standing in an open landscape. The animal is shown with a large bird in the background, described as a 'Rattling crane', possibly intended as the Blue Crane Anthropoides paradisea. Plate 1 from the book Miscellanea zoologica, quibus novae imprimis atque obscurae animalium species describuntur et observationibus iconibusque illustrantur by P S Pallas (The Hague, 1766). An explanation to the plate appears in Latin: "Antilope Grimmia, a latere spectanda, pede altero sublato, velut inquieta. E longinquo apparet Grus crepitans, situ quiescentis." Inscribed above "Tab. I.", and below "J.J.Bylaert Fec."
Original: copperplate engraving. 1766
