In total 81 such engravings were published, although individual plates are extremely rare.
The silvery, finely hatched lines of copper engraving represents the physical nature of fishes far more successfully than woodcuts and are note only extremely rare but well ahead of their time. Their skill in depicting fish was unmatched for over a century.
The last complete set to come up at auction was the Harvard Library copy at Christie's in 2013 where it attained a price of USD 27500.
