The Peloponnesian Wildcat

Scarce original hand coloured lithograph of the Peloponnesian Wildcat from Bory de Saint- Vincent's" Expédition scientifique de Morée, entreprise et publiée par ordre du gouvernement français. Travaux de la section des sciences physiques.."

A sub species of the European Wildcat; Felis silvestris "It differs from F. s. silvestris in its generally isabelline coloration,in the absence of distinct stripes on the sides, and in having theblack rings on the tail straight and clearly defined; lateral stripesreplaced by irregular brownish-rufous marblings; feet unspotted"(Trouessart, 1910, p. 100).

Bory de Saint-Vincent states in the text (1836, vol. 1, p. 396) that among the oak-dotted pastures of the locality near Mount Diaphorti the Wildcats occur in larger numbers than elsewhere. Here he collected the specimen from the high branches of an oak. According to Geoffrey (in Bory de Saint-Vincent, 1833, vol. 3,pt. 1, zool., p. 13), the animal is very common in certain mountainous parts of Arcadia, especially in the Canton of Karytaena and on the slopes of Mount Diaphorti. It is destructive to poultry, smallbirds and mammals, and partridges.

The image drawn by J.C Werner shows the Wildcat upon a branch as described by Saint-Vincent. Image bright and clean; toning to edges of page and rust spot to upper blank margin; the title has been corrected with a pasted paper.

The image shows the 2 tortoises and an outline detail of the shells with illustrations of a coin from Aegina, showing the tortoise represented on the coin.

The spur-thighed tortoise or Greek tortoise (Testudo graeca) is one of five species of Mediterranean tortoise (genus Testudo, family Testudinidae).

The marginated tortoise (Testudo marginata) is a species of tortoise found in Greece, Italy and the Balkans in southern Europe. It is the largest European tortoise, reaching a weight of up to 5 kg (11 lb) and a length of 35 cm (14 in). Its shell is oblong and has a notable thickness around the middle of the body. The posterior end of the shell has a saw-like formation, flanged outward like a bell. The carapaces of adult specimens are almost completely black, with yellow highlights. The front sides of the limbs are covered with large scales. The tail is notable for a lengthwise marking and for an undivided carapace over the tail. The marginated tortoise is herbivorous, and hibernates for the winter. Very light toning; scattered spotting colors bright; tiny wormhole to lower right corner of plate.
