Johann Michael Seligmann after Mark Catesby. From Sammlung verschiedener auslandischer und seltener Vogel.... Nurnberg, 1749-76. Some minor marginal blemishes. Overall, very good condition.
Johann Michael Seligmann, a German publisher, issued a nine volume collection of the work of Mark Catesby and George Edwards in 1749. Seligmann began issuing his ambitious series just a few years after Edwards and Catesby each published their landmark works. The text was translated into German by Georg Leonhard Huth, and Seligmann produced all new plates based on the images of the two Englishmen.
