Archiv der Insectengeschichte, Fuessli, Johann Caspar
1 Fuessli, Johann Caspar Archiv der Insectengeschichte
Zurich and Winterthur Heinrich Steiner und Comp. 1781-1785 First edition Full Calf Very Good 
With 39 plates, mostly hand-colored, of insects, all finely and minutely rendered. Four parts bound in one, although title pages for six parts. While the organizational principle of this early entomological series defies coherent explanation, there are textual descriptions of the plate content easily discoverable in the vicinity of the pertinent plate, and there is some table of contents to be found herein. Bound in modern calf, with contemporary spine label preserved. Binding is tight, and while there is at times moderate foxing, most pages are clean, notwithstanding age toning, and the plates themselves are stunning. With modern endpapers sympathetic to the work and its vintage. 
Price: 1750.00 USD
