Zoological study of the Snow sheep, or Siberian big horn sheep (Ovis nivicola), native to the uplands of north-eastern Siberia. Plate 1 from the book Zoologischer Atlas, enthaltend Abbildungen und Beschreibungen neuer Thierarten wahrend des Flottcapitains von Kotzebue zweiter Reise um die Welt..., by Friedrich Eschscholtz (Berlin, 1829). Inscribed "E. Bomer del. J.Gumpel jun. Sc. Ovis nivicola." Johann Friedrich Eschscholtz (1793-1831) Livonian physician, botanist and zoologist, was naturalist aboard two expeditions led by Otto von Kotzebue (1787-1846). The Rurik expedition 1815-1818 and the Predpriaetie 1823-1826 both circumnavigated the world and collected scientific specimens. These are from the second expedition.

Original: stipple engraving. 1829
