Details

1 The Badger 2 The Opossum 3 The Kangaroo' From Ebenezer Sibly's "Universal System of Natural History" 1794. The prolific Sibly published his Universal System of Natural History in 1794~1796 in five volumes covering the three natural worlds of fauna, flora and geology. The series included illustrations of mythical beasts such as the sukotyro and the mermaid. Although Seba is credited as the artist, the kangaroo image is after Sarah Stone's image published in 'Journal of a Voyage to New South Wales' by John White in 1790.
