(4) (half-title and title-page), 84 pp., 47 leaves, four of which w. three and 43 of which w. four beautiful engravings of insects and their plants on each, in all 184 engr. illustrations, all in very clear impressions, mostly measuring about 15 x 11 cm. but the last 30 mostly about 21 x 15 cm. each. (All illustrations are numbered; Nr. I and LI both have a No. 1 and 2, but there are (and is not supposed to be) no illustrations numbered CLXX (170) and CLXXII (172), -the two vignettes probably hold the place of these, thus we get two engr. vignettes and 184 engr. illustr. in all). All plates are in excellent condition w. virtually no brownspotting or soiling. Copy w. wide margins.. Rare and extraordinarily beautiful work. First folio-edition in French (same year and place as the first folio-edition in Dutch), first French edition. Originally this work was published as "Der Raupen wunderbare Verwandelung and sonderbare Blumennahrung" in Nuremberg in 1679 - 83 in 4to with 100 plates; later it was published as "Die rupsen Begin, voedsel, en wonderbare verandering" in Amsterdam in 1713-17, also in quarto w. 150 plates. In 1718 it became "Erucarum Ortus, alimentum et paradoxa metamorphosis", also a 4to printed in Amsterdan with 150 plates. In 1730 it was issued for the first time as an augmented folio-edition with 184 engr. illustrations in French and in Dutch, both printed in Amsterdam; the illustrations are the same as those of the original, but this edition also contains new ones. In 1771 it became part of the "Histoire générale des insectes de Surinam et de toute l'Europe" in three volumes.Maria Sibylla Merian (1647 - 1717) was born in Germany by a Dutch mother. Already as a child she was fascinated by insects; this fascination grew into a passionate interest in especially the transformation of caterpillars into butterflies and moths. Early on she drew these insects as well as the plants on which they nourish. All aspects of them were thus depicted by her, i.e. also all the stages from egg (over caterpillar and pupa) to full-grown insects. Prior to Maria Merian, describers and illustrators of insects were only concentrating on identifying the species and she is the first to also depict the plants they feed on. After having seen a collection of insects and caterpillars from Surinam (Guiana), Merian decided to go there, and thus sailed off to South America with her youngest daughter, who later helped her with her illustrations. From the rainforest numerous species were collected; she fed the caterpillars and continually sketched them, achieving an immense insight into the development of the insects, -this behaviour also resulted in her being considered somewhat of an eccentric. After 21 months (1701) she returned to Europe taking all specimens with her. Her illustrations were turned into her very famous work on the transformation of Surinam insects ("Metamorphosis insectorum Surinamensium"), which was published in Amsterdam in 1705. In the present work she has continued her development and gained knowledge of the insects, focusing again on European insects."Merian was the first author to associate insects with their host plants." (Desmond, Great Natural History Books and their Creators, 2003, p. 28). She was highly influenced by the excellent and precise paintings produced by the Dutch school of flower painters at the time, whose works were based mainly on meticulous observation as well as precision; the flowers "accessorizing" her insects are very accurate. She was the very first to paint plants in their natural surroundings. "Though Maria Merian's first concern is with the insects that she portrays, the plates also show the plants upon which these insects live; these plants are drawn with the same delicacy and precision as the insects themselves [...] Maria Merian was a fine artist." (Sitwell, Great Flower Books 1700 - 1900, p. 30).Maria Merian has been of great importance to the way we portray insects, other animals and plants later on, -in their natural habitats. Her passion drove her further in the knowledge of insects than anyone had gone before. "Denn in Wahrheit galt das Interesse dieser von leidenschaftlichem Forscherdrang beseelten Frau in erster Linie den Käfern und Schmetterlingen, ihrer Farbenpracht und noch weiter ihren aufregenden Gestaltsverwandlungen, in deren Geheimnis sie als eine der ersten einzudringen suchte." (Nissen BBI 1, p. 30).A frontispiece is found in some copies, but has not been issued with all; most bibliographies do not mention it. It is not present in this copy.Horn u. Sch. 14993. Hunt 483.

Stockholm, Henr. C. Merckell, 1723. 4:o. (8),+ 183 s. Titeln och delar av dedikationen tryckt i rött och svart. Lätt lagerfläckig och med enstaka små fläckar. Samtida pergamentband med Gustaf Flygares namnteckning. L. F. Rääfs exlibris. Warmholtz 2517, 1386 resp. 1625. Fiske Runic literature, s. 19 (för Dijkman). Ett av Verelius tidigaste författade arbeten i svensk historia, vilket han dock själv inte ansåg vara värt att trycka. Manuskriptet utgavs av Petrus Schenberg med ett företal av A. O. Rhyzelius. Innehåller även en förteckning över Verelius skrifter, som Schenberg enligt Warmholtz fått av Stiernman. Warmholtz ansåg det för väl att eftervärlden var av en annan uppfattning än Verelius själv, inte bara på grund av de goda ting den innehåller utan även för "... des sköna historiska styl, hvaruti Verelius var en mästare". Schenberg gav samma år även ut "Vereliana", som innehåller ett urval av Verelius mindre skrifter, brev m. m. Christs historik över langobarderna är i själva verket ett utdrag ur Paulus Diaconus "Historia langobardum", dock något förvanskad. Den innehåller även ett utdrag ur Conrad av Lichtenaus krönika om langobarderna samt ett utdrag ur Saxo. Johannes Friedrich Christ (1701-56) var professor i poetik i Leipzig. Petter Dijkmans bok om runstenar är postumt utgiven av tryckaren Henric Merckell. Petter Dijkman (1647-1717) var fornforskare och hängiven rudbeckian. Hans främsta arbete anses vara "Antiquitates ecclesiasticae", som utkom 1703 och är det första försöket till en svensk kulthistoria. Gustaf Flygare (1743-1805) var professor i juridisk ekonomi i Uppsala, och ett flertal av dennes böcker köpte Rääf
