Histoire générale des insectes de Surinam et de toute l'Europe

Maria Sibylla Merian. Histoire générale des insectes de Surinam et de toute l'Europe. Paris, L. C. Desnos, 1771.

This 1771 publication includes the text of Metamorphosis insectorum surinamensium, first published in Latin and Dutch in 1705.  This edition includes a French translation of the work, as well as Jean Marret's translation of Merian’s Der raupen wunderbare verwandelung, und sonderbare blumennahrung, 1679-83.

The numerous translations and editions of Merian's work are testimony to the popularity of her work throughout Europe in the century following the original publication of Metamorphosis insectorum Surinamensium.
