Copper engraving 40 x 27 cm
The copper engravings are attributed by Brunet to Antonio Lafréri.
SUPERB 16th CENTURY CLASSIC ENGRAVING ON ICHTHYOLOGY and indeed one of the first scientific illustration ever to use engraving rather than woodblock.
References: Adams S-190; Brunet V:101; Graesse VI, p. 253; Mortimer Italian 454; Nissen ZBI 3555; Wood p. 549.
The finely hatched lines of the copper engravings are far more successfully than woodcuts and are not only 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 attain a price of USD 27500.
An excellent impression on fine laid paper.
