@Description At a time when few women were educated - and rarely travelled - German-born naturalist and artist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) made history with her studies of insects in Surinam. With its detailed text and imagery, The Metamorphosis is the first work on the natural history of Surinam. This reprint of a hand-colored first edition copy includes the complete plates with a commentary by Katharina Schmidt-Loske. This publication pays homage to her work and offers readers an opportunity to appreciate her sumptuous engravings.
