a Mongolian Chief from the Nadeshda Bay

after Heinrich Rudolf SCHINZ

(Zurich 1777 - 1861)

“Tatarischer chef in der bay Nadeshda”

(a Mongolian Chief from the Nadeshda Bay Region)
Original lithograph from the graphic kit of the work “Naturgeschichte und Abbildungen der Menschen und der Saugetiere” printed by the swiss lithographer Honegger and published in Zurich betwen 1830 and 1835.
Nice example with some foxing stains around the subject otherwise in good general condition, embellished with a bright and accurate recent watercolouring.
Beautiful representation of a Mongolian Chief dressed with the elegant ceremony clothes.
Nadeshda Bay was a place in the Northern part of Sakhalin Island whose name comes from that of one the two ships that made the first russian round the world expedition under the orders of Captain Ivan Kruzenshtern from 1803 to 1806.
An engraved view of Nadeshda Bay is shown in an Atlas relating Kruzenshtern's trip published by the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1813.
An example of this Atlas is found in the collection of the Library of Congress at Washington.
