Rare. A fine series of plates from an important monograph on the grouse and its hybrids. Mützel, an animal painter born and trained in Berlin, was perhaps best known for his work for his work on A. E. Brehm's Illustriertes Tierleben, but the present work is undoubtedly his masterpiece. The plates were drawn on stone by Mützel from his own drawings, printed in Berlin and then, according to Nissen, hand-coloured by M.Schneider.
