Neues Systematisches Conchylien-Cabinet is a collection of 11 pictorial books of marine shells. Each page was individually hand colored and very beautiful. The first three volumes were published by Gabriel Nikolaus Raspe starting in 1769. After his death in 1778 Johann Chemnitz continued the work creating eight more volumes between 1779 and 1795 Friedrich Wilhelm Martini who practiced medicine in Hamburg began, in 1769, the richly colour illustrated shell book: Neues systematisches Conchylien-Cabinet published by Gabriel Nikolaus Raspe at Nürnberg. But he died after the publication of the third volume. His work was continued by Johann Hieronymus Chemnitz (1730–1800) who added eight volumes between 1779 and 1795. Even though the work does not use the binomial system both are considered the authors of the new species. He was a Member of Berlinische Gesellschaft Naturforschender Freunde Johann Chemnitz continued the work of Friedrich Wilhelm Martini (1729–1778), Neues systematisches Conchylien-Cabinet. He added to the three volumes previously published eight new volumes in 1779 and 1795. Although neither of the two authors use the binomial system, they are regarded as the authors of many species which were first described in this work. Chemnitz used many specimens from cabinet of curiosities of the king of Denmark whose conservator was Lorenz Spengler (1720–1807). Chemnitz began with a collection of half shells before collecting whole shells. His patron was Christian Hee Hwass (1731–1803). This print is an original. This is NOT a copy or reproduction.
