More About This Item


Item Overview

Description: This originally hand-colored entomology engraving is from Jan Christian Sepp's Beschouwing der wonderen Gods, in de minst geachte schepzelen. Of Nederlandsche Insecten, naar hunne aanmerkelijke huishouding, verwonderlijke gedaantewisseling en andere wetenswaardige bijzonderheden... The work began publication by Sepp in Amsterdam in 1762. The work was continued in a second and third series out to 1928. The stipple engraving featured here is on watermarked, chain-linked paper and from the earlier part of the publication.

The engravings are beautifully rendered and the height of entomological illustration. Sepp's publishing company was known for its exceptional quality engravings. As Sepp authored the work, the attention to detail and artistry rendered in this work is extraordinary. Sepp's family continued the work and publishing company until 1868.

"[The] First series started by Christiaan Andreas Sepp together with his son Jan Christiaan (1739-1811) published in issues and in the format after the model chosen by Roesel von Rosenhof; Sepp followed his own path for the descriptions of butterflies and their illustrations. It has become the most important work on Dutch lepidoptera." (Landwehr 182)
