Part 3 of the work by Pluche, with fine copper engravings, Le spectacle de la nature.., Avignon, Pierre Delaire, 1768 A.D.

Author:

Noël-Antoine Pluche (13 November 1688 – 19 November 1761)), known as the abbé Pluche, was a French priest. He is now known for his Spectacle de la nature, a most popular work of natural history. Pluche, son of a baker, was born in Rheims, in a street now named after him. He became a teacher of rhetoric. The Bishop of Laon made him head of the town's college, a post he accepted to escape judicial consequences of opposing the papal bull Unigenitus (1713). He withdrew in 1749 to La Varenne-Saint-Maur, near Paris, where he died.
