Catesby - Sammlung Verschiedener Ausländischer und Seltener Vogel

Catesby - Sammlung Verschiedener Ausländischer und Seltener Vogel

The plates of Catesby were re-engraved by Johann Michael Seligmann (1720-1762), further embellished by the addition of figures of plants not present in the originals. Seligmann a Nürnberg publisher and engraver, published some of the most splendid natural history works of his time such as Trew's 'Hortus Nitidissimis', and Gessner's 'Opera botanica' . The original is of the most splendid German
works on birds. The number of copies printed must have been very small as complete copies with all the 9 volumes are rare. In 1749-1776, the works of Edwards 'A natural history of uncommon birds' and 'Gleanings of natural history' were translated into German and combined with work of Catesby into one work under the title 'Sammlung verschiedener ausländischer und seltener Vögel'.
