Summary[edit]

Description
English: "The Deluge", Frontispiece to Doré's illustrated edition of the Bible. Based on the story of Noah's Ark, this shows humans and a tiger doomed by the flood futilely attempting to save their children and cubs.
Français : "Le Déluge", Frontispice de l'édition illustrée par Gustave Doré de la Bible. Basé sur l'histoire de l'Arche de Noé, la gravure montre des humains et un tigre tentant en vain de sauver leur progéniture.
Date The first edition was 1866. This edition is probably from about that time - may well be a first edition - but in any case is certainly not later than 1900 or so.
Source The Holy Bible: Containing the Old and New Testiments, According to the Authorised Version. With Illusrations by Gustave Doré. (Cassell / Company, Limited: London, Paris & Melbourne)
Author Gustave Doré (1832-1883) The "Pannemaker" in the lower right refers to Adolphe François Pannemaker (1822-1900) one of Doré's assistants in turning his art into a full-fledged engraving, and a reasonably notable engraver in his own right.
