Carl Gustav Calwer (1821 in Stuttgart, † 1874 in Stuttgart-Berg) was a German forestry, entomologist and ornithologist.
From this beetle book, which appeared for the first time in 1858, there were six updated editions up to this edition – 1916. The first edition was produced in collaboration with the zoologist and physician Gustav Jäger, who also supervised the post-editions after Calwer’s death in 1874. The more than 1000 beetle drawings from the book are used until today.
These books are a must have for the collectors!
