One of the finest and most celebrated works on insects, translated from the original German edition (1740-1746) by C.F.C. Kleemann, the son-in-law of the author, with the same plates. This Dutch edition is unanimously considered to be preferable to the German edition: (much) larger size on thicker paper and superior colouring by Kleemann and his wife Katharina Barbara Rösel von Rosenhof.
