Condition: Very good

cm 35x21, frontispiece engraved by Mathias Merian the younger (1621-1687), who is also the publisher, of vol. I of the first edition of the important work on animals by Jonston, which consists of 6 parts:
"De quadrupedibus - De exanguibus aquatis - De piscibus et cetis - De avibus - De insectis - De Serpentibus". Copy on laid paper with watermark, in good condition (see photos).
Cfr. Library of British Museum,I, p. 942 - Nissen,ZBI,2131 - Ceresoli, p. 311 - Krivatsy,6256.

"I libri di storia naturale di John Jonston (1603-75), medico e naturalista di origine scozzese, costituiscono un importante documento sulle cognizioni zoologiche del sec. XVII e hanno all'incirca lo stesso carattere delle opere di Gesner." Cosi' Diz. Treccani,VI, p. 31

    De verzending van UPS kon wel beter. Het ging heen en weer van Utrecht naar Italie. Er ontbrak een import verklaring. Wiens schuld dit is . . . dat weten we niet.
