.. Pl. 41 Antique Print of a Dromedary by Merian (1657)

Description: Antique print of a dromedary. This print originates from 'Historiae Naturalis (..)' by John Johnston, published by Matthias Merian in 1657.

Artists and Engravers: John Johnston (or Johnstone, 1603-1675) was a descendant of a Scottish family. Born in Sambter, Poland, he studied extensively at the famous universities of the day, including St. Andrews, Scotland, Cambridge & Leiden. After many years traveling in Europe, he settled in Silesia. Matthaus Merian was a leading German engraver of the day, from a prominent family of engravers and artists, and the father of Maria Merian.
