About this book

Composed of sixty-nine boxes, Jacques Kerchache's insect collection is illustrated here for the first time. It is part of a tradition that dates back at least to the renaissance, when, spurred on by the great voyagers and navigators, collectors curated curio rooms in which fauna, flora, minerals, fossils, skulls, shells and insects were classified and arranged.
