a native of New Ireland Island

after Heinrich Rudolf SCHINZ (Zurich 1777 - 1861)

“Neuirrland Bewohner von Hafen Carteret”

(a native of New Ireland Island in Papua New Guinea)
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 between 1830 and 1835.
Nice example with two small tears at the upper edge and a few slight foxing spots at the borders otherwise in good general condition, embellished with a bright and accurate recent watercolouring.
New Ireland Island is part of Bismark Archipelago in Papua New Guinea, Cateret Harbour is located in the southern coast and is also known as Lamassa bay.
The native shown in the lithograph comes from this place and dresses the typical jewels.
