Info: This image was taken from a 1790s book called "A Description of Above Three Hundred Animals viz Beasts, Birds, Fishes, Serpents and Insects" which featured animals known to exist as well as animals suspected to exist including dragons and unicorns.  

Many of the animals which did in fact exist had clearly not been seen by the illustrator, their description and traits were taken from word of mouth and myth.
