EDITORS COMMENTS
This exquisite hand-colored copperplate stipple engraving depicts the European spiny lobster, Palinurus elephas, also known as Hippolyte sowerbyi, Nika nicca, Cannelata, or the variable spiny lobster. The illustration is taken from Antoine Laurent de Jussieu's Dizionario delle Scienze Naturali, or Dictionary of Natural Sciences, published in Florence, Italy, in 1837. The engraving was created under the direction of Pierre Jean-Francois Turpin, a renowned French botanical illustrator of the 19th century. Turpin, born in 1775, is celebrated for his exceptional talent in capturing the intricate details of natural forms. He oversaw the creation of this illustration, which was drawn by Jean Gabriel Pretre and engraved by Corsi. The European spiny lobster is shown in its entirety, displaying its distinctive features, including its long antennae, spiny legs, and intricate eyes. The European spiny lobster is a large marine crustacean that inhabits the rocky and sandy seabed of the Atlantic and Mediterranean seas. It is a commercially important species, with various common names such as Sowerby's hippolyte, variable spiny lobster, and the edible spiny lobster. The species is also known by its scientific names, including Spirontocaris spinosa, Palinurus variabilis, Penaeus processus, and Athanas nitescens. This beautiful engraving is a testament to the skill and artistry of the 19th-century scientific illustrators and their dedication to documenting the natural world. The intricacy of the engraving and the vibrant colors of the hand-coloring bring the European spiny lobster to life, showcasing its unique features and beauty.
