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-colour illustrations of reptilesA riot of brilliant colours, shapes, and sizesMagnificent reproductions from rare originalsUnlimited potential as graphic and decorative elements in art, craft, and educational projects
