I CEPHALOPODI
Cephalopods of Naples

From an 1896 monograph by Giuseppe Jatta.  The illustrator is Comingio Merculiano (1845- 1915), a professional watercolor painter hired in 1885 by prof. Anton Dohrn as in-house illustrator for the Naples Zoological Station, and one of the best scientific illustrators to date. This book on cephalopods is his masterpiece.
