"Jan van der Hoeven (9 February 1802 – 10 March 1868) was a Dutch zoologist. His most famous book is "Handboek der Dierkunde" (1827–1833), translated into German and English (by prof. Clark). He wrote as readily about crocodiles as about butterflies, lancelets and lemurs. His research on the nautilus resulted in the discovery of an secondary sexual organ of unknown function which was then named after him as Hoeven's organ or Van der Hoeven's organ."

This work, published by the Royal Academy of Sciences, is apparently about a forest dog (Icticyon van Lund) and includes a folding plate in the rear showing two skull views and segments of the jawbone.
