Nurnberg 1740


original hand coloured copper engraved plates; plate size approx. 18 x 15 cm; exc. cond.


Beautifully executed and originally hand coloured engravings of butterflies, moths, bugs and other insects by Roesel von Rosenhof, a German miniature painter and naturalist. Whilst recovering from a disease, he discovered Anna Maria Sibylla Merian?s ?Metamorphosis insectorum Surinamensium? in which she described the insects and other animals which she observed in Surinam, and he conceived the idea to write and illustrate a similar book on the German fauna.
