    Together 10 (of 11) volumes, folio (19 x 15 in.; 48.2 x 38/1 cm). 6 PLATE VOLUMES: 600 EXCEPTIONALLY FINE engraved plates with original handcoloring after Manetti, Lorenzi and Vanni; a few loose plates, top outer corner of pl. 100 damaged, plates 197 and 198 torn in upper margin, repair to long tear on pl. 221, early closed tear on pl. plates 267 and 336 slightly shorter. 4 (of 5) TEXT VOLUMES: elaborately engraved half-titles by Lorenzi after Giuseppe Zocchi, 2 letterpress title-pages with engraved vignettes (one in Latin and one in Italian in each volume), parallel text in Latin and Italian, engraved headpieces on dedication leaves in vols. 1-3, engraved vignette of measurements on B2r (vol. 1), engraved allegorical plate by Lorenzi in vol. 4, engraved initials, descriptions for 480 birds; lacking vol. 5, minor marginal repairs to R1 and T1 (vol. 1), Q2 (vol. 3) and E1 and N2 (vol. 4). Contemporary half speckled calf, marbled paper boards, the spines in six compartments with five raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in the second, the others with gilt-ruled borders and small decorations; a bit scuffed and a few small scrapes to spines, but attractive. FIRST EDITION, "ONE OF THE FINEST BIRD BOOKS ISSUED TO THAT DATE AND ONE OF THE MOST SUMPTUOUS PUBLICATIONS OF THE 18TH CENTURY IN ITALY" (Jackson, Dictionary of Bird Artists). Manetti was a physician and director of the Florentine Botanical Gardens from 1749-1782. He worked almost exclusively from real specimens, beginning with the extensive collection of Marquis Giovanni Gerini. The result was one of the largest surveys of ornithology attempted up to that date, a work which became "the flamboyant forerunner of the splendid ornithological folios which were to appear in the nineteenth century. The production of its five massive folio volumes must have been one of the most remarkable publishing ventures ever undertaken in Florence. Begun in 1767 and completed ten years later, it was larger, better engraved and more vividly coloured than any previous book on birds, notable for its lively posturing of the specimens which seem to reflect 'the habits and mannerisms of contemporary Italian society" (Dance, The Art of Natural History, p. 70). REFERENCES: Ayer/Zimmer. P. 241; Fine Bird Books (1990) p.120; McGill/Wood, p. 450; Nissen IVB 588 PROVENANCE: contemporary gilt initials "F.B." at the foot of each spine; remains of later printed paper shelf labels at the foot of each spine (L64F27A-B).

    Hand-coloured etchings, with engraving. Framed and glazed, overall dimensions: 60cm x 48cm x 3.5cm. Saverio Manetti (1723-1785) was a prominent Florentine physician and botanist and a member of some of the leading scientific societies in 18th century Europe. In addition to his other accomplishments Manetti produced one of the finest bird books of the eighteenth century, the Ornithologia Methodice Digesta, which prefigured the later more ornithologically oriented books by trying for the first time to show birds that did not look obviously stuffed, against backgrounds that are relatively realistic ones rather than artificial branches. It was commissioned by Maria Luisa, the Grand Duchess of Tuscany, and the copper-engravings were made by Violante Vanni and Lorenzo Lorenzi over an almost a ten-year period from 1767 to 1776. Manetti worked almost exclusively from real specimens, beginning with the extensive collection of Marquis Giovanni Gerini. The result was one of the largest surveys of ornithology attempted up to that date, a work "larger, better engraved and more vividly coloured than any previous book on birds, notable for its lively posturing of the specimens. It is one of the half-dozen or so Great Bird Books in the collector's sense. The attitudes of the birds themselves give this book its unique character. Strutting, parading, posturing, and occasionally flying. To the collector it is certainly a great book with very beautiful plates." (Dance).

From the [Natural History of the Birds Treated Systematically and Adorned with Copperplate Engraving Illustrations, in Miniature and Life-Size], 1766-1777.

    Zustand: Fine. This originally hand-colored engraving is from Saverio Manetti's work Storia naturale degli Uccelli or A Natural History of Birds. The prints were drawn and etched by Violante Vanni and Lorenzo Lorenzi with the text penned by Saverio Manetti. The work was published in Florence, Italy between 1767 and 1776 by F. Mouck, C. Cambiagi, and Giuseppe Vanni.Storia naturale degli Uccelli was 'larger, better engraved and more vividly coloured than any previous book on birds', notable for its lively posturing of the specimens which seem to reflect 'the habits and mannerisms of contemporary Italian society' (Dance). It is "one of the half-dozen or so Great Bird Books in the collector's sense" (Fine Bird Books). Dance p.70; Nissen IVB 588; Wood p.450; Fine Bird Books p.10; Zimmer I, 241.Each bird engraving shows remarkable personality and detail, many of the birds often taking on an almost human personality type. Manetti drew his work predominantly from real specimens. The work was one of the largest ornithology undertakings to that point in time.This beautiful plate comes from Storia naturale degli uccelli, of which Peter Dance writes "The production of its five massive folio volumes must have been one of the most remarkable publishing ventures ever undertaken in Florence. Begun in 1767, and [based on birds taken from the collection of Giovanni Gerini], it was completed ten years later.

Strutting, parading, posturing, and occasionally flying.are birds whose real-life counterparts would surely disown them, and not without reason, for Manetti seems in these pictures to be depicting the human comedy, the habits and mannerisms of contemporary Italian society.
