The most expensive is "Albert Seba's Cabinet of Natural Curiousites", 'Taschen: first edition edition' (Jumbo) contains all four volumes and is listed on Amazon for $499 and up with 635 pages at 17.6 lbs.
Less expensive is the "Cabinet of Natural Curiosities (The Colored Plates 1734-1765)",'original Taschen edition edition' It is listed for $97.50 and uphas 415 pages at 6.2 lbs.
The least expensive is sold as "Cabinet of Natural Curiosities/Das Naturaleinkabinett/Le cabinet des curiostes" 'Taschen: 25 edition' There are two extra authors who are not listed on the other editions. The book is a mix of English, German and French. The color plates are better described as pictures, albeit very good ones. It is listed at $23.12 and up, 416 pages and 6.8 lbs.
There are other less common editions; one is a paperback poster portfolio, another book has 14 framable prints.
I would ask the seller for specific details on the book they plan to ship to you. The more expensive editions use higher quality paper, the binding is sturdier and the plates are sharper. However, reviews make it clear the book is treasured regardless of the edition people buy.
I highly recommend this book for people of all ages and interests!
