From Beytrag zur Naturgeschichte der Vögel (Contribution to the Natural History of Birds), Vienna, 1790-95.

Joachim Johann Nepomuk Anton Spalowsky was a polymath in the Austrian Empire of the late eighteenth century. He published on topics ranging from ornithology to conchology to economics and numismatics.

These charmingly idiosyncratic original engravings show great attention to detail and a passion for the natural history of birds, and, when framed, will enliven and cheer any space in which they are displayed.
