Historiae naturalis de avibus libri VI: cum aeneis figuris
Amstelodami: Joannem Jacobi Fil. Schipper, 1657. 1657 1st ed Jonston BIRDS Thaumatographia Avibus Science Mythological MONSTERSJohn Jonston was a 17th-century Polish scholar who sought to organize and clarify knowledge on all subjects - a truly daunting and unattainable task. In 1632, Johnston first published his most important work 'Thaumatographia Naturalis' - a compilation of scientific studies including astronomy, natural science, archaeology and fossils, biology and plant science, zoology, and most important human anatomy and medicine.'De Avibus' is the final installment in Jonston's 'Naturalis' - a compendium of his zoological studies on birds and aviary. And while the contents of this book are important, like other sections from this work, Jonston includes his views on mythological creatures such as griffons, harpies, and phoenixes. These 63 illustrations are known to sell for a high price alone - very rare to have them be included in this work.
