"The 15 plates which make up this publication were stipple-engraved on copper by Bauer between 1806 and 1813 after his watercolours drawn from nature... Both plates and watercolours are now in the collection of the British Museum (Natural History)... These new impressions, the first to be taken from the original copperplates since Bauer's 1813 edition, were printed a la poupee and hand-finished in watercolour... Modern names and place of publication have been researched by Dr. Christopher Humphries.Only three parts of the original work were published, each limited to fewer than 50 copies, comprising a title, dedication (to Sir Joseph Banks), 3 pages of text and 15 plates.
