OCLC Number: 11209541
Notes: Unfinished work: 6 fascicles were issued from 1792 to 1801, in Latin and German, the latter described in the publisher's catalogs as a translation by the author. Fascicles 1 and 2 were issued together in 1792, 3 and 4 together in 1793, 5 in 1795, and 6 in 1801.
In the Latin edition the description of no. 34 (Testudo Dorsata), which occupies pages 158-160 of the German edition, is omitted except for the first four initial references, followed by the catchword "? T." (for the next reference), probably because no plate was made for it and the printer didn't want to add the half-sheet needed to complete the text.
Date on title page with turned c's.
Collation: 4to: *⁴ 2*², A-R⁴ [$3 (+2*2) signed]; 54 leaves, pages [I-III] IV-XII, [1] 2-136 + 35 plates, numbered I-XVII, XVIIA, XVIIIA-XVIIIB, XIX-XXVIIII, XXXA-XXXB, XXXI-XXXII. The numbering of the descriptions is keyed to that of the plates ('Tab. I', etc.).
No illustrations were produced for the last two turtles (headed Tab. XXXIII and Tab. XXXIV): no specimen or image was available for plate 33; plate 34, according to the German text, was to have been copied from an original in the Museum of Harlem, but no plate was produced, probably owing to Schöpf's death on 10 September 1800. Plate 32 is often lacking, and was not called for in the printed title of the fascicle 6 wrapper.
Copies were sold with the plates uncolored or colored; in the latter, plates 12, 18B, 22, and 32 remain wholly uncolored, and plates 14, 15, and 24 are partially uncolored.
Named artists: F.W. Wunder (plates 1-2, 4-11, 13, 23, 25, 26, 30A, 30B, 31); Keller (plate 17; the name is too common to enable identification). Named engravers: J.F. Volckart (plates 26, 30A, 30B, 31-32); J. Nussbiegel (plate 27). Plates otherwise unsigned.
Description: xii, 136 pages, [34 or 35] leaves of plates : illustrations (engravings, some colored) ; 30 cm (4to)
Other Titles: Ioannis Davidis Schoepff Historia testvdinum iconibvs illvstrata
