Image of unknown provenance reportedly from the Colmore Collection. It would appear to be a preserved specimen of some sort but that is by no means a certainty. It was claimed by a prior owner of a museum oddities to be a photograph of a preserved Vampyre slain during a metamorphic transition. The contrary evidence that it came from the Colmore Collection suggests that it might be a creature of Faery. If that is the case, the 19th Century clothing is unlike anything I have seen in the images I have examined thus far.
