The German edition was published simultaneously with a Latin edition (" Icones cimicum"). Both are rare, especially in a complete state. Contains many new species that are beautifully illustrated. Wolff died in 1806 and according to Hagen the last part was published by Wolff's father in 1811. A former owner has added explanatory text leaves to each plate, which is quite useful. A few annotations in the first part in an old hand. Small, vague library stamp on title and a small water-stain in a the lower inner corner of the first few pages. Some foxing in the text, otherwise a very good, clean copy. Rare. Hagen II, p. 294; Horn-Schenkling 24336.
