About this Item

BLOCH, MARCUS ELIESER (1723-1799). THE INDIAN HUNCH BACK. 130mm x 210mm. Printed in 1805 in England. Engraved by J. Pass. Hand colored engraving. In very good condition with the binding holes on the lower margin. Marcus Bloch was born in Anspach. He was a medical doctor but became interested in natural history at an early age and studied intestinal worms. When he was 57 Bloch began his studies of fish. His first original work was on German fish. His study of foreign fish was based on the work of others thereby incorporating a great deal of inaccurate findings along with imaginative illustrations. He was one of the first students of fish to publish a series of fish prints. Bloch worked with many artists and J. Pass was just one of many. Bookseller Inventory # 2169
