FRISCH, Johann Leonhard.
Der X ten Hauptart II te Abtheilung XIV te Platte, Die Pfau Taube oder Hunerschwantz, Columba caudata, Pigeon a queve de Paon,
Beautiful print of the pigeon, the colours vibrant, the detail exquisite, from Johann Leonhard Frisch’s ‘Vorsstellung der Vogel in Deutschland’. This was the first great German colour-plate bird book. The plates feature European and exotic birds, including a number of parrots, drawn from the family collection of preserved specimens. The book was a family affair, completed after Frisch’s death by his sons and grandson.
