|"Zoological Sketches" 6.25 inch plate featuring a skunk!|
|"Zoological Sketches" mark.|
|Source print for "Skunk" from "The Cabinet of Quadrupeds" by John Church, 1805|
I am always interested in what the engraver copied from a source print. The skunk is looking cautiously at the dog in the source print. As you noticed, there is no dog on the plate.
