WONDERFUL DECORATIONS AND TEXTURES INTO ALBERTS SEBA’S BOOK ABOUT SHELLS AND MARINE LIFE

These amazing images are taken from “internet archive” (aka archive.org), on a page dedicated to the book of Albertus Seba “Locupletissimi rerum naturalium thesauri accurata descriptio, et iconibus artificiosissimis expressio, per universam physices historiam”, Published in 1734
The Dutch pharmacist and collector Albertus Seba (1665-1736) was an ardent collector of plants, insects, and animals, amassing a collection which in 1716 was bought by Peter the Great. In 1734, Seba published his Thesaurus, titled Locupletissimi rerum naturalium thesauri accurata descriptio, translated as “Accurate description of the very rich thesaurus of the principal and rarest natural objects”, and consisted of four volumes of which two were published after Seba’s death. The coloured engravings found here are from the volume focused on the life of the sea, including various shells, fish, and plants.
