Waiting for minimum critic reviews


From the eighteenth century's most important natural history collection--and one of the all-time greatest compilations of its kind--comes this remarkable book. Amsterdam-based pharmacist Albertus Seba (1665-1735) spent most of his life acquiring thousands of specimens of animals, plants, and insects from around the world. In 1731, he commissioned illustrations of every item in his collection. The vivid, detailed, and meticulously accurate images that appear in this volume feature:
240 full-color illustrations of reptiles
A riot of brilliant colors, shapes, and sizes
Magnificent reproductions from rare originals
Unlimited potential as graphic and decorative elements in art, craft, and educational projects
