1789 Lamarck & Redoute Antique Conchology Print of Duck Clam Shells Pl 255

Description:
This fine beautifully hand coloured original antique copper-plate Conchology print was published by Jean Baptiste Lamarck in Encyclopedia Methodique, Paris 1789-1832. 
These prints by various artists including H J Redoute - younger brother of the famous Rose illustrator P J Redoute - Fossier, J Deseve and others were engraved by Robert Benard who was responsible for most of the engravings of the French edition of Cooks voyages.

Jean Baptiste Lamarck (1744-1829) - was one of the most famous French naturalists of the 18th century. He took part in the war of The Seven Years with the Duke of Broglie. After abandoning the military career and returning to France, he settled in Paris, where he devoted himself to Medicine, Meteorology and Botanic, for which he had as a master Bernard de Jussieu. 
He became well-known after the publication of the catalogue La Flore Française, written using the dichotomic keys, a new method invented by the same Lamarck. As the botanist of the king, he started a long trip through Europe, taking with him Buffon's son. When he returned, he worked at the Encyclopedie methodique, continuing D'Alembert and Diderot's work. After starting teaching at the Museum National d' Histoire Naturelle, he spent all his time devoting himself to Zoology, with a particular interest to fossils and living mollusks. 
The scientific world owes him the reorganization of the classification and distinction between Vertebrates and Invertebrates and the introduction of new species divisions, like Crustaceans, Arachnids and Annelids. The [Encyclopedia Methodique] Botanique 1789-1832, was his most famous work. It was originally published in 4 volumes, containing over 1000 plates, of which 28 by Redouté.(Ref: M&B; Tooley)
