Lanius Collyrio has a dark smudge near the right corner of the platemark and an additional wrinkle along the right side. All have light penciled notations. All measure 14.5 x 21 inches.

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.
