Jakob Sturm

German engraver, 1771-1848

"Jacob Sturm was a leading engraver of entomological and botanical scientific publications in Germany at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century. Sturm became a celebrated insect collector and founded the Nuremberg Society for Natural History. His entomological and botanical plates are very accurately drawn and show minute details and enjoyed a great popularity among naturalists. His work ""Deutschlands Flora"" (1796-1862) comprises 2.472 engraved plates, as well as texts by Johann Christian Daniel von Schreber, David Heinrich Hoppe, Heinrich Gottlieb Ludwig Reichenbach and others."
