Double Page Antique Engraving from the 18th Century.

Published in the Early Eighteenth Century, from 1734-1754, Albertus Seba published the most magnificent work Locupletissimi Rerum Naturalium Thesauri Accurata Descriptio. It was a book of curiosities based on the personal collection of Seba’s specimens of newly identified flora & fauna. The ocean was of particular interest to this Dutch 18th century collector and naturalist.

Interested in invertebrate marine life, Albertus Seba included Anthozoa Cnidaria in his book. Perhaps it was the colonies of polyps living in symbiosis that interested Seba the most. Subsriber’s to this early 18th Century book were thrilled with these dramatic pictures of what laid underwater. Today it is considered to be one of the finest works published on Sea shells, corals & other marine life.
