I stumbled upon this French site that has many old engravings, often in large format and in color.  I really like botanical illustrations.  Most botanical illustrations are all over Pinterest, but this old image is new to me.  The description reads: “Fish color drawing after ‘Universal Dictionary of Natural History’ Atlas Zoology Volume 2 reptiles and fish by C. d’Orbigny – Paris.”
