Merian, Maria Sibylla Graff.
Amsterdam: 18th century. Hand-colored copperplate engraving on paper. Plate 31 from Dissertatio de Generatione et Metamorphosibus Insectorum Surinamensium by A. Maria Sybilla Merian (1647-1717) and Johanna Helena Herolt (1668-1773). Merian is a remarkable figure among natural history artists. Already a successful and published illustrator of insects, she and her younger daughter, Dorothea, left Holland for Surinam in 1701, where she compiled hundreds of drawings of insects and flowers for her landmark Metamorphosis Insectorum Surnamensium. It remains one of the most decorative yet factual works of Natural History.

[Amsterdam, 1647] - Copper engraved with hand colour 380 x 525 mm From Blaeu's 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum'. German text on verso. A decorative map of the West Indies and the Gulf of Mexico, heavily based on Hessel Gerritsz' 1631 map of the same region. The map illustrates the Caribbean, Florida, the south-east coast of the United States, Central America, and the north coast of South America. The title is featured in the upper left corner within a cartouche supported by two putti, and surrounded by various animals native to the Americas, including a turtle and an iguana. The Blaeu family were one of the most famous publishers of maps, globes and atlases during the seventeenth-century. Cartographers, globe makers and booksellers, the Blaeu business flourished in Amsterdam for over 40 years, until a fire destroyed their premises in 1672. They lost all of their plates, prints and stock, which effectively ruined the firm. Willem Blaeu founded the business in 1596. It initially functioned as a globe and instrument makers, but soon expanded into maps, topography and sea charts. The Atlas Novus was Willems great work; a major work which intended to include the most up-to-date maps of the entire world. He issued the first two volumes in 1635, but died in 1638 before the atlas was completed. The running of the business was passed on to his sons Johannes and Cornelius, in addition to the role of the official cartographer of the East India Company. After the death of Cornelis in 1644, Johannes continued the business alone and established his own reputation as a great mapmaker. Johannes c … [Click Below for Full Description]

He is said to have been president of the Bordeaux parliament; the town president Schmieder calls him such and adds that he was a defender of alchemy. In the first work d' Espagnet became the first of his time to oppose the physics of Aristotle while in the second he concentrates on the alchemical art with a listing of relevant apparatus. He was commended for the elegance of his style as well as his alchemical knowledge, and the legendary alchemist Philalethes is one of the earliest writers to quote from him, transcribing whole passages..
