Nürnberg, privately published, (n.d., but circa 1826). 8vo (20.1 x 12.0 cm). pp. v-viii; 12 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary blind grey/black mottled paper covered boards. Original printed wrappers bound in.

Nice early 19th-century booklet with many engravings of flowering plants, insects, shells, fish, reptiles and amphibians, birds, and mammals, by the German engraver, botanist, entomologist and zoologist Jacob Sturm (1771-1848). The first plate shows a Mexican volcano. With two and a half plates, the mammal section forms the majority of the illustrations. The text gives descriptions of the plates. The work uses Schubert's 1823 Lehrbuch der Naturgeschichte für Schulen as a reference. Text page numbers i-iv not used (perhaps not published). Boards and spine much rubbed; the plate margins thumbed, otherwise a good copy. Very rare. Nissen ZBI, 4031.
