These images come from "the classic works of the German veterinary anatomists, Wilhelm Ellenberger and Hermann Baum, and medical illustrator, Hermann Dittrich. The texts, from which these illustrations were derived, are works published in 1898 and 1911 through 1925, all entitled 'Handbuch der Anatomie der Tiere für Künstler' which can be translated as Handbook (or Atlas) of Animal Anatomy for Artists" and are online at the University of Wisconsin - Madison Botany Department Teaching Collection. There are about eighty images in total relating to the lion, goat, horse, deer, dog and cow.
About half of the above images had physical hole-punch watermarks which I removed - and the set has been uploaded to wikimedia.
