Sammlung verschiedener auslandischer und seltener Vogel
1749 - 1776
Johann Michael Seligmann after Mark Catesby and George Edwards
The Natural History prints of Mark Catesby and George Edwards were re-engraved between 1749 and 1776 by Johann Michael Seligmann a talented Nürnberg engraver and publisher, in some instances embellishing the plates with different plants after his own inspiration. Seligmann published them together in a beautiful illustrated book with German texts entitled ‘Sammlung verschiedener ausländischer und seltener Vögel’ (Collection of different rare and foreign birds).
