1775 Schreber Hc Engraving #307e Flying Lemur

1775 SCHREBER - HC COPPERPLATE ENGRAVING
"Die Saeugthiere in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen"

HANDCOLORED --- EXTREMELY RARE

TAFEL 307e

ORIGINAL ANTIQUE HANDCOLORED COPPERPLATE ENGRAVING

Philippine Flying Lemur

Galeopithecus rufus, TODAY: (Cynocephalus volans)

Philippinen-Gleitflieger - Galéopithèque

This over 238 year old original antique handcolored copperplate engraving is taken from a volume of Schreber's famous work
"Die Saeugthiere in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen" (The mammals in accordance with illustrations of nature with
descriptions), published and printed by "Wolfgang Walther" in Erlangen/Germany, 1775. (Ref. Nissen, ZBI, 3748)

Prof. Dr. Johann Christian Daniel von Schreber (1739 - 1810) was a German naturalist and member of the
Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. He started studying medicin, natural sciences and theology in Halle/Germany
and completed his study 1761 in Uppsala /Sweden successfully with his dissertation "Theses medicae".
After his return to Germany he directly got an employment as practical doctor in Buetzow and only two years later
he was accepted as full member of the "Leopoldina", the German academy of natural scientists. In 1870 he took
employment at the university of Erlangen as professor for botany, natural history, economies and politics where he
kept the University belonging botanical garden three years later while translating the complete works of Carl von Linne
(Carolus Linnaeus) into german language. He also wrote on entomology notably "Schreberi Novae Species Insectorvm."
Schreber is often prefixed I.C.D. and died 1810 in the age of 71 in Erlangen.

In 1774 Schreber began writing these multi-volume set of books entitled "Die Saeugethiere in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen",
which focused on the mammals of the world. Many of the animals included were given a scientific name for the first time, following the binomial
system of Carolus Linnaeus. These charming plates are from a set ofappr. 800 illustrations. The artists responsible had, however, never
seen the animals they drew, relying on descriptions from explorers and travellers. Many of the pictures, therefore, are somewhat unrealistic.
Collectively, they are known as "Schreber's Fantastic Beasts".

SIZE:
approx. 7,49'' x 9,06''/ ca. 19,0cm x 23,0 cm

QUALITY:
The condition of the plate is nearly excellent. The colors are remarkable, as they
are vibrant and clear on the fine watermarked chain-lined paper.
