1835 Maneless Indian Lion by Edward Lear

Item # 1410583

Paul Stewart

<p>Plate 24 from Volume 1 Trans. Zool. Soc. London, 1835, \Some Account of the maneless Lion of Guzerat\ with contemporary hand colouring as issued. The plate illustrates the first scientific confirmation, with a specimen, of the maneless Indian lion. It was communicated to the Zoological Society of London by Captain Walter Smee 1833. This plate was engraved by Zeitler from a painting by Edward Lear (1812-1888) who went on to be more famous for his 'literary nonsense' poems. He was however a talented painter employed early in his career by the Zoological Society. In the accompanying article, Captain Smee writes of the lion \there exists a race in which the king of beasts is destitute of the flowing mane which constitutes the most remarkable of his regal ornaments\.</p>
