Présentation de l'éditeur

Albertus Seba's curious creatures

A most unusual collection of natural specimens

Albertus Seba s Cabinet of Natural Curiosities is one of the 18th century s greatest natural history achievements and remains one of the most prized natural history books of all time. Though scientists of his era often collected natural specimens for research purposes, Amsterdam-based pharmacist Albertus Seba (1665-1736) was unrivaled in his passion. His amazing collection of animals, plants and insects from all around the world gained international fame during his lifetime. In 1731, after decades of collecting, Seba commissioned illustrations of every specimen and arranged the publication of a four-volume catalog from strange and exotic plants to snakes, frogs, crocodiles, shellfish, corals, birds, and butterflies, as well as fantastic beasts, such as a hydra and a dragon.
Seba s scenic illustrations, often mixing plants and animals in a single plate, were unusual even for the time. The more peculiar creatures from the collection some of them now extinct were as curious in Seba s day as they are today.

This reproduction is taken from a rare, hand-colored original. The introduction supplies background information about the fascinating tradition to which Seba s curiosities belonged.

Biographie de l'auteur

The authors:

Irmgard Müsch, born in 1967, studied art history, history and classical archaeology in Mainz and Berlin. Her Ph.D. thesis from 1999 examines Johann Jakob Scheuchzer s Kupfer-Bibel, a richly illustrated scientific commentary on the Bible from the early 18th century. She has published on art of the 18th and 20th century, scientific illustrations and Kunstkammer pieces.

Jes Rust, born 1963, completed his studies in geology, palaeontology and zoology at Göttingen and Kiel. His thesis dealt with the evolution of fossil snails living in the fresh and brackish waters of prehistoric Greece. His assistantship at the Institute of Zoology in Göttingen between 1993 and 1999 was followed by his appointment in 2001 as professor of invertebrate palaeontology and insect phylogeny at the University of Bonn.

Rainer Willmann holds a chair in zoology at Göttingen University, is director of its Zoological Museum, and is co-founder of its Centre for Biodiversity and Ecology Research. A specialist in phlogenetics and evolution, he conducts research into biodiversity and its history.

The publisher Taschen has provided this classic work in several editions that differ in quality, number of color plates, amount of material and price. The book was authored by Seba and edited by Musch. This review compares the three most common editions.

The most expensive is "Albert Seba's Cabinet of Natural Curiousites", 'Taschen: first edition edition' (Jumbo) contains all four volumes and is listed on Amazon for $499 and up with 635 pages at 17.6 lbs.

Less expensive is the "Cabinet of Natural Curiosities (The Colored Plates 1734-1765)",'original Taschen edition edition' It is listed for $97.50 and up and has 415 pages at 6.2 lbs.

The least expensive is sold as "Cabinet of Natural Curiosities/Das Naturaleinkabinett/Le cabinet des curiostes" 'Taschen: 25 edition' There are two extra authors who are not listed on the other editions. The book is a mix of English, German and French. The color plates are better described as pictures, albeit very good ones. It is listed at $23.12 and up, 416 pages and 6.8 lbs.

There are other less common editions; one is a paperback poster portfolio, another book has 14 framable prints.

I would ask the seller for specific details on the book they plan to ship to you. The more expensive editions use higher quality paper, the binding is sturdier and the plates are sharper. However, reviews make it clear the book is treasured regardless of the edition people buy.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Poor print quality 9 mars 2013
Par Torie - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I believe the reason this book is so inexpensive is that the printing is off. The colors are very dark and brash, which just ruins the delicate quality of the drawings for me. I'm surprised there were so many good reviews - I would have sent it back immediately if it wasn't a pain to. To give some perspective I own a lot of books with botanical reproductions, and have done some printing myself - I can definitely tell that the printing does not look right.

A huge book of illustrations, including birds, insects, botanicals, coral, sea life, and more. Perfect large-scale coffee table book. Definitely a quality product for the price.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Stunningly Beautiful Book 19 avril 2012

I have been wanting this book for a long time, but couldn't find an affordable copy. This edition is just gorgeous. There is an older edition that has a prettier cover, in my opinion, but this one is quite lovely for the reasonable price. This is a very large, heavy book. It's lovely on a coffee table where it's handy to through while enjoying your coffee, or you can do as I did and put it on a tabletop easel. It is, after all, like a work of art. It's easy spend hours enjoying all the interesting drawings inside. If you were in desperate need for some art for your walls, you could even (oh horrors!)cut up the book and frame some of these stunning pages. Well worth the money, I highly recommend this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 AMAZING BOOK! 16 septembre 2011

This book is breathtaking. It's from Taschen so you know it's going to be the best illustrations, paper, covering, etc. The price is unheard of as well. This book probably originally sold for $200 dollars, so this selling for $26.39 with free shipping is hands down a must have. You will not be disappointed in this book, absolutely perfect :)
