Four beautiful hand-coloured engravings of snakes, 1831, Battelli, by printer Pretre. The engravings have very attractive colours.

In reasonable to good condition. Along the edges are some small tears. In addition
some stains. No tears in the drawing. Edges are somewhat frayed.

Four Superb engravings of snakes made by the master Pierre Jean Francis Turpin. The engravings are written in Latin and Italian and come from the first Italian edition of Dictionary of natural sciences ( Dizionario di scienze naturali) by Battelli in 1831. This imponent work was made up by 29 volumes and contained hundreds of engravings that represented all the plant and animal kingdom. This work derives from an excellent work of luminaries of the 18th century supported by the french King Louis XV and then directed by the same Turpin that was considered as the greatest botanical engraver of his time. The most of his engravings are signed Turpin & Pretre. The engravings are made in an excellent way with fine details and coloured by hand. Each engraving measures about 5.5 x 9 inches.
