    Description

    Cornelius Nozeman (1721-1786). Four Prints: Title page, Nederlandsche Vogelen. [and:] Certhia. [and:] Chloris. [and:] Fringilla, Domeatlea.

    A beautiful set of four nesting scenes. Among these hand-colored engravings from Nederlandsche Vogelen (Amsterdam: 1770-1827) is the book's title page. All are in very good condition. All have deckled binding edges on the right sides, minor toning along the remaining edges, and very slight foxing throughout. All have slight wrinkles along the binding edges. The title page has two areas of paper loss along its binding edge and some smudging along the bottom margin. The left edges of the remaining prints are slightly deckled from handling during the printing process. All have light penciled notations. All measure 14.5 x 21 inches.


    More Information:

    These prints from the first edition of Volume II of Nederlandsche Vogelen (Amsterdam: 1789).

    Cornelius Nozeman (1721-1786), a Dutch apothecary and clergyman, compiled the first comprehensive description of the birds of Holland in his mammoth Nederlandsche Vogelen, with sensitive and delicate engravings of birds, their nests, and their eggs rendered by Christiaan Sepp. The huge project (at the time the costliest book ever published) took 60 years to complete, continuing well after Nozeman's and Sepp's deaths. Only the first two volumes contain work directly attributable to Nozeman and Sepp; the hand-colored prints offered here are from the second volume, published in Amsterdam in 1789.
