Author: LEDERMÜLLER, Martin Frobenius (1719-1769) Artist: N/A

Ledermüller’s delightful work belongs to the most beautifully illustrated books on microscopy and is the first with hand-coloured plates. The exquisite plates are depicting a range of objects such as plants, insects, small shells, plankton, and the crystallization of salts in solution as well as optical instruments.
