Drawings of braque du Bourbonnais by Aldrovandi

Here is the famous engraving of the braque du Bourbonnais in 1598, from the Italian naturalist Aldrovandi.
The Bologna museum has a colored version of this engraving. This original drawing, done by Aldrovandi himself, has a lot of interest, because it shows a liver dog, fawn-ticked at the muzzle and legs, a characteristic coat of the old Bourbonnais, mentioned in the 1925 standard.
The drawing is of bad quality, particularly for the proportions, because Aldrovandi was a bad drawer. It was his disciples, much better artists, who did the engraving that we know from his indications.
