Nothosaurus Charles Maurand
Product images of Nothosaurus
Shoreline landscape with reconstructed examples of extinct reptiles from various periods, including Labyrinthodontia, and Nothosaurus, the latter from the Triassic. The scene features other smaller creatures and trace fossil footprints.
Plate 13 from the book The world before the deluge, by Louis Figuier, newly edited and revised by H. W. Bristow (Cassell, Petter, and Galpin, London, 1872).
Signed within the plate, ‘MAURAND’ lower left and ‘RIOU’ lower right. The image is numbered and captioned below: ‘XIII. – Ideal Landscape of the Muschelkalk Sub-period.’
The accompanying text (p.190) states: ‘Another Reptile of great dimensions – which would seem to have been intended to prepare the way for the apppearence of the enormous Saurian which present themselves in the Jurassic period – was the Nothosaurus, a species of marine Crocodile, of which a restoration has been attempted in PLATE XIII. opposite’
