Author: GLEICHEN-RUSSWORM, Wilhelm Friedrich (1717–1783) Artist: N/A

Baron von Gleichen-Russworm belongs to the outstanding microscopists of the eighteenth century. He recorded his observations in this splendid volume illustrated with a beautiful set of delicately hand-coloured copperplates showing the morphology of plants and insects in great detail, preceded by six large colourplate views of his specially constructed microscope and its different parts.
