The very fine plates were all drawn and engraved by Knorr, who also conceived the idea of the work. The first edition was published between 1750 and 1772 and Knorr (who died in 1761) did not live to see it completed. The text was prepared by Philipp Friedrich Gmelin and Georg Rudolf Bohmer. These prints are from the third and rarest edition . Germany 1789
