Berlin, privately published. 1782-1795. Well preserved hand-painted engraving of exotic fish.

Printed signature in lower left corner by the illustrator, Krüger, junior. But these prints are generally known as BLOCH prints, amongst the best fish prints ever produced. The hand-colouring is absolutely original.

A fine, original, unfolded plate from Bloch's folio of foreign and exotic fishes. The folio of exotic fish engravings are arguably the most spectacular produced by Bloch, surpassing his magnum opus, which is on German fish. Bloch, a German Doctor and Naturalist, is considered to be one the most important Ichthyologist of the 18th Century and his collection of roughly 1500 specimens are preserved in the Museum für Naturkunde of the Humboldt University of Berlin. All of the prints are beautifully coloured, with a fine glazing that cannot be reproduced in modern prints. Bloch's plates often have one or two folds (if they are from the 8vo edition of Bloch's work which is usually the case), but this plate is not folded. This print in excellent condition, no creases, dents or tears or foxing present (see images).
