Wien, Gerlach & Schenk, 1896. Large folio (57.4 x 43.4 cm) stunning chromolithographed plate in a fantastic Art Nouveau style.

A very rare plate from Anton Johann Nepomuk Seder's "Das Thier" [L'animal - The Animal] with the finest and most stunning plates of Art Nouveau book design. It is hard to underestimate the beauty and importance of this work by the famous German Art Nouveau painter and art professor, who lived from 1850 to 1916. Each plate from this work is a true highlight of artistic design and is absolutely breathtaking. Seder's work had many followers in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements and afterwards; original individual plates are still highly in demand. This plate principally shows marine gastropods, including members of the genera Lambis, Terebra, Conus, Haliotis, Chicoreus, Cassidaria, Cerastoderma, Cypraecassis, Cymbium, Aporrhais, and several others. The quality of this chromolithograph is absolutely first class. Some small fraying at upper edge, tiny loss of upper right corner. An exceptionally well-preserved print, very decorative. Schneider-Henn, 200.
