At lower right is the title in Latin, at lower left in German. Georg Wolfgang Knorr (30 December 1705 in Nürnberg – 17 September 1761 in Nürnberg) was a German engraver and naturalist.  Born in Nuremberg, he was initially apprenticed to his father's trade of wood turning, but at the age of eighteen became an engraver of copper-plates for Leonhard Blanc, working with Martin Tyroff on the illustrations for Jacob Scheuchzer's Physica Sacra (1731). This work and his acquaintance with J.A. Beurer, a mineralogist-correspondent of the Royal Society, quickened Knorr's interest in natural history. Further stimulus was provided by the wealthy doctor and polymath Christoph Jakob Trew, owner of a menagerie as well as a wide-ranging natural history collection. During his lifetime, he published numerous engravings, some as single folios and some in books. Noteworthy are his works "Deliciae naturae selectae" (1766-67) and the "Vergnügen der Augen und des Gemüths," the latter of which was the sequel to the first volume which appeared in 1757. These are filed by the Simthsonian as the 'rarest of the rare' having original colour and large images for a change
