Nissen ZBI, 3630; 3633; Cobres p. 757 no. 33; Nissen ZBI, 3623; 3621; 3622; B.M. (Nat. Hist.) IV, 1822. All first editions, especially his publication "Kalchartiges Bergmeel…" is a great rarity. Jacob Christian Schaeffer (1718-1790) was a Bavarian clergyman-naturalist, a phenomenon so characteristic of the age of Enlightenment. His interest was broad and apart from publishing the most beautiful early iconography on fungi he published on birds, entomology and paper-making, however most of his works describe the fauna and flora of South Germany. A few pages with some marginal worming.
