Item Description: Ein einzigartiger Schatz der Naturgeschichte ist das Naturalienkabinett von Albertus Seba (1775-1736). Sammelte der Amsterdamer Apotheker zunächst zu Forschungszwecken Pflanzen und Tiere aus aller Welt, so überschritt seine Sammelleidenschaft bald die in der Pharmazie üblichen Grenzen. Von außereuropäischen Insekten und farbig schillernden Schlangen bis hin zu Krokodilen und der fantastischen siebenköpfigen Hydra reichte Sebas Sammlung, die bereits zu seinen Lebzeiten internationalen Ruhm genoß. Ab 1731 ließ der Apotheker alle Naturalien zeichnen und veröffentlichte sie anschließend als vierbändigen Thesaurus. Die ästhetisch anspruchsvollen Illustrationen vereinen Tiere und Pflanzen in szenischen Darstellungen. Dieses erzählerische Element und die graphische Gestaltung verleihen den Tafeln bis heute ihren besonderen Reiz. Der vorliegende Band reproduziert alle 449 Tafeln nach dem prächtig handkolorierten Exemplar aus der Koninklijke Bibliotheek in Den Haag. Die einleitenden Essays führen in Sebas Werk ein und beleuchten die Stellung des Thesaurus in der Tradition der Kunst- und Wunderkammern. (Text engl.) 29 x 44 cm, 588 Seiten, 472 Farbabb., geb.

Item Description: Taschen GmbH, Germany, 2016. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Illustrated. Language: English . Brand New Book. Albertus Seba s curious creaturesA most unusual collection of natural specimensAlbertus Seba s Cabinet of Curiosities is one of the 18th century s greatest natural history achievements and remains one of the most prized natural history books of all time.Though it was common for men of his profession to collect natural specimens for research purposes, Amsterdam-based pharmacist Albertus Seba (1665 1736) had a passion that led him far beyond the call of duty. His amazing, unprecedented collection of animals, plants and insects from all around the world gained international fame during his lifetime. In 1731, after decades of collecting, Seba commissioned illustrations of each and every specimen and arranged the publication of a four-volume catalog detailing his entire collection-from strange and exotic plants to snakes, frogs, crocodiles, shellfish, corals, insects, butterflies and more, as well as fantastic beasts, such as a hydra and a dragon.Seba s scenic illustrations, often mixing plants and animals in a single plate, were unusual even for the time. Many of the stranger and more peculiar creatures from Seba s collection, some of which are now extinct, were as curious to those in Seba s day as they are to us now.Our superb, complete reproduction is taken from a rare, hand-colored original. The introduction offers background information about the fascinating tradition of the cabinet of curiosities to which Seba s curiosities belonged and an additional annex, written by contemporary biologists, provides descriptions of the specimens.
