Gualtieri - Corals & Shells

Beautifully engraved and coloured print of a coral! From Gualtieri’s work ‘Index Testarum Conchyliorum, quae adservantur in Museo Nicolai Gualtieri’ (translation:’List of the shells of shellfish which are preserved in the Museum of Niccolò Gualtieri’). 

Gualtieri was an Italian medical doctor and a professor  at the University of Pisa with a great interest in shells and corals. Together with Giuseppe Menabuoni (1708-1745) and Antonio Pazzi (1706-1768), he created  the ‘Index’ with 110 beautifully engraved copper engravings, based on his very own collection which is now based in  Museo storia naturale di Pisa.
