TRUTHUHN / TURKEY : Pallo Pavone, o Pollo d'India nero con macchie bianche. Gallo-Pavo Niger
1767-76. Kolorierte Umrissradierung, Platte: 27,5 x 34,5 cm / Coloured etching, plate: 27,5 x 34,5 cm. Sehr dekorative, altkolorierte Radierung, gewidmet an Orlando Malavolti, aus "Storia naturale degli uccelli" von Saverio Manetti (1723-1784), gedruckt bei Giuseppe Vanni in Florenz, zeigt das Truthuhn. Für die Darstellungen dieses Werkes, das zwischen 1767-1776 in fünf massiven Folio Bänden erschienen ist, wurden die Vögel aus der Sammlung von Giovanni Gerini verwendet. Manetti, Mediziner und Naturwissenschaftler, war Mitglied von Royal Society und der Präsident von Societa botanya und von Giardino botanyo di Firenze. Gering gebräunt, sonst gut erhalten. Verso Stempel. This beautiful print of a turkey, dedicated to Orlando Malavolti, was published in "Storia naturale degli uccelli" by Saverio Manetti (1723-1784), Lorenzo Lorenzi and Violante Vanni (1732-1776), printed by Giuseppe Vanni Begun in 1767 in Florence. Begun in 1767 this massive work in five folio volumes, with images based on the extensive collection of Marquis Giovanni Gerini, was completed ten years later. Manetti, medical doctor and natural scientist, was a member of Royal Society and a president of Societa botanya and of Giardino botanyo di Firenze. This work on birds was 'larger, better engraved and more vividly coloured than any previous book on birds', notable for its lively posturing of the specimens which seem to reflect 'the habits and mannerisms of contemporary Italian society' (Dance, 70). Paper slightly age-toned, stamp on the back, otherwise in a good condition.
