The most beautiful work ever made on bugs and cicadas

A very scarce German translation of two works, which, as here are mostly found bound together. The Dutch original was published bilingual in Dutch and French and was published by Sepp, a publisher who always exercised the utmost care in producing colour-plate books of outstanding quality. The plates for the German edition were re-engraved by Winterschmidt of Nüremberg and almost identical to the Dutch edition. The present work is the most beautiful work ever made on bugs and cicadas and is one of the finest in the field of entomology. The 29 plates of the first work depict 173 insects, and the 41 plates of the second work 298 insects.
