French engraving representing a walrus and manatees by the drawer Victor Adam dating from the middle of the 19th century.
Jean-Victor Vincent Adam, born in Paris on January 28, 1801 and died in Viroflay on December 30, 1866, is a French painter and lithographer. He has illustrated numerous works and his drawings have been interpreted in engraving by Antoine François Gelée, Émile Giroux and Jean-François Pourvoyeur.
This engraving is probably the result of a reissue of the encyclopedia on wildlife of Buffon.
