US$4,500per set

About

Francois Nicholas Martinet bird engravings, set of six, circa 1770. This is a set of six but we have another set of six with the same frames to make a bigger set of twelve. The framed Francois Martinet engravings from Buffon's Historie Naturelle des Oiseaux display beautifully in large frames. Dimensions: 21 3/4 inches high x 13 inches wide x 3/4 inches deep (sight: 10 inches x 8 1/4 inches). Over the course of his illustrious career, François Nicolas Martinet (1731-1790?) engrved illustrations of birds for some of the most influential naturalists in 18th century France, including François Salèrne, Mathurin Brisson, and, above all, Georges Louis Leclerc, le comte de Buffon. This exceptional, hand-colored engraving is from Georges Louis Leclerc Comte de Buffon's work Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux. The work was published in Paris from 1770-1786. Francois Nicolas Martinet provided all of the illustrations for the work.
