Rarely seen print from the first edition of "Teutsche Ornithologie", published in Darmstadt in 1799: a fine and rare large copy of one of the most splendid German work on birds.
"... a work by which it was attempted to create a German parallel to the sumptuous ornithological works of other countries, notably of France, e.g. Levaillant's works, to which it was compared at that time ... and with which it is quite comparable on account of its beautiful plates. These were drawn, engraved, printed, and coloured, by Susemihl in co-operation with his brother, J.Th. Susemihl, and lateron his son, Eduard Susemihl" (Anker 52).
Susemihl directed and executed the drawing, etching, engraving and hand-coloring for Teutsche Ornithologie.
The birds depicted are very large and the birds of prey fill the page in their unique magnificence, the detail of their plumage superbly rendered in these copper engraving.
"Nicht minder lobenswert ist auch die 'Teutsche Ornithologie', die Johann Conrad Susemihl gemeinsam mit seinem Bruder Johann Theodor und später mit seinen Kindern Eduard und Emilie in Darmstadt mit Hilfe eines Kreises begeisterter Naturfreunde schulf... die Tafeln, die in Stich wie Kolorit zu den Spitzenleistungen des späten Kupferstiches gehören... (Nissen p. 53).
Each print is folio in size,with ample margins was printed on strong ”Blawu” paper, still in excellent condition, some with water marks.
