De Seve's Animals - "LE CANNA"- Copper Engraving - 1760
RARE, ANTIQUE COPPER ENGRAVED ANIMAL PRINTThis 254 year old print by Jacques de Seve is from Buffon's "HISTOIRE NATURAL" in 1760.
Jacques Eustache de Sève (1742-1788) was the main artist commissioned by Buffon for his "Histoire Naturelle, Générale et Particulière" (1749-1760). He was one of the first artists to use complete scenes including landscape backgrounds, which influenced later natural history illustrators.
Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon (1707 - 1788) was a French naturalist, mathematician, cosmologist, and encyclopedic author. His works influenced the next two generations of naturalists, including Jean-Baptiste Lamarck and Georges Cuvier. Buffon published thirty-six quarto volumes of his "Histoire Naturelle" during his lifetime; with additional volumes based on his notes and further research being published in the two decades following his death. It has been said that "Truly, Buffon was the father of all thought in natural history in the second half of the 18th century."
