Produced by the Amsterdam Zoological Museum and ETI
In the second half of the 18th century, F.M. Regenfuss (the Royal Engraver to King Frederic V of Denmark) created a set of 12 hand-coloured plates with 78 figures - masterpieces from both the aesthetic and zoological point of view - each showing a number of beautifully arranged shells. These illustrations are so accurate that nearly all species shown can be easily recognized. The original French texts have been translated for this digital reproduction, and an expert from the Zoological Museum compared the plates and the original texts with modern nomenclature; thus both the original and scientific names of all species are given.
