Grampus [False Killer whale?]
Plate 17 for the paper "Observations on the structure and oeconomy of whales", by John Hunter, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society vol. 77 part 1 1787 pp.371-450. View of the animal's left side from slightly above: there is a shadow below, suggesting a whale seen laid out on the ground. Hunter described the whale as "about eighteen feet long, the belly white but less so than in the former, and shaded off into the dark colour of the back". The specimen was caught in the River Thames "fifteen years ago" [eg 1772]. Numbered "II". Not signed.
Original: ink on paper. 1787
