No place, not published, ca. 1700. Broadsheet (28.5 x 20.3 cm). Drawings on laid paper.

This item shows a number of western European fish, a crawfish, and a tropical cone shell (Conidae, genus Conus), drawn by the same old hand, using red ink. All illustrations are captioned, in pencil, in another old hand writing in old Dutch. This is the work of a skilled artist, at least someone familiar with the fishes of north-western Europe. Edges slightly frayed with a few very short tears, otherwise in a very good condition. A unique item.
