Gottlieb Tobias Wilhelm - Unterhaltungen aus der Naturgeschichte. Vierzehnter band. 1829/ Unterhaltungen über den menschen. 1828 - Augsburg, Schlossers Buch und Kunsthandlung, 1828/1829 - First and only edition - Neue Ausgabe - (12) + 488 + 60 illustrations - Original half leather binding, spine with gold print and title labels - 18 x 12 cm.
In very good condition. Nice, original binding. Very sturdy and decent block. Very neat, fresh and white paper (also the illustrations, only the title page has some light browning). The photos are a bit dark because of dawn, the paper is white in reality. Contains 60 copper engravings.
First edition. Very rare and valuable natural-historical work of sublime beauty.
Contains no less than 60 magnificent and largely coloured copper engravings (numbered) on quality, thick paper.
All very neat, white, clean and fresh. Incredibly nice illustrations with gorgeous colouration.
Very rare and sought-after book. A must-have for serious collectors of natural history.
Please look at the photos of the copper engravings and convince yourself.
Gottlieb Tobias Wilhelm (1758-1822) was a Bavarian minister and nature researcher in Augsburg.

The damage to the cover and pages could have been made more explicit (by means of pictures). Restoring cover is doable, the other damage is not recoverable. Would have liked to know when bidding.

Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Boek tijdig geleverd, goed verpakt. Een paar kleine lijmresten op de achterflap en binnenin nog lijmgeur van herstelling in de rug. Dat had ik graag ook in de beschrijving gelezen onder 'staat'.
