I know of at least one illustration accompanying a paper of Nopcsa and
possibly drawn by him. You can find it in Pat Shipman's 'Taking Wing'. In
1914, Gerhard Heilmann drew a couple of fighting _Proaves_ in a glade for
an article that was later to become part of _The Origin of Birds_.
Unfortunately, this fine drawing didn't make it to the final English
translations, because Heilmann had changed his mind over the form and
position of this hypothetical pre-bird. However, I am not aware of any
drawing by Abel. If anyone is, please respond.
