Deliciae Naturae Selectae, oder, Auserlesenes Naturalien-Cabinet is a book written and illustrated by Georg Wolfgang Knorr, a German engraver and naturalist. The book was first published in 1766 and features a collection of detailed illustrations of various natural specimens, including animals, plants, and minerals. This collection is from his work on mollusks and corals, specifically. 

The book is divided into three volumes, each focused on a different realm of nature: the animal kingdom, the plant kingdom, and the mineral kingdom. The illustrations are highly detailed and accurate, and were created using a variety of techniques, including engraving, etching, and watercolor.

One of the most notable features of the book is its dedication to scientific accuracy. Knorr was known for his meticulous attention to detail, and his illustrations are highly regarded for their scientific accuracy and artistic beauty. In addition to the illustrations, the book also includes detailed descriptions of each specimen, as well as information on their natural history and geographic distribution.

Deliciae Naturae Selectae was highly regarded in its time and was considered a significant contribution to the study of natural history. Today, it is still valued as a historical reference and a work of art, and is often sought after by collectors and enthusiasts of natural history and scientific illustration.
