partis Teritiae Classis Secundae Sectionis Secundae. Aporrais.


Beautiful representation of sea shells.


ca. 1740



Giuseppe Menabuoni and Antonio Pazzi were both Italian painters and printmakers and Niccolo Gualtieri was a medical doctor and professor at the University of Pisa, whose avocation was the study of molluscs. He devised a system of classification of the shells for this book, which was admired by the zoologists, such as Jean-Baptiste Lamarck. Menabuonis splendid plates reproduce specimens of Gualtieris shells, some of which are still in the collection of the Museum of Natural History and the Territory in the Certosa di Calci, operated under the auspices of the University of Pisa.
