  • Sources

    • found: Recueil de planches de botanique de l'Encyclopédie, 1823: planche 1re (J.E. de Seve)
    • found: Buffon, Histoire naturelle, v. 31 (Hist. des serpens, v.2), 1789; v. 32-36 (Hist. des poissons, v. 1-5), 1798-1802 or 1803; and Supplément v.7 (1789): (plates signed variously Jac. Eust. de Seve (usually adding "filius"), J.E. de Seve filius, De Seve filius, as artist and less frequently as engraver; in Buffon plates the signature De Seve or D.S., infrequently Jac. de Seve or J. de Seve, without "filius", presumable represents the work of his father)
    • found: Bénézit, E. Dict. des peintres, sculpteurs, 1948-1955: (Sève, Jacques Eustache; artist and engraver; 2nd half of the 18th cent. [this appears, from the activity dates, to conflate Jacques Eustache de Sève with his father Jacques, active 1742-1788])
    • found: Bénézit, Dict. of artists, 2006: (Sève, Jacques Eustache de, son of Jacques de Sève, born 1790, died 1830, active to 1815 [the birth date is impossible, and probably represents incorrect interpretation of an estimated earliest date of activity given in an unspecified source; he was first active no later than 1789; no other source has been found to confirm the date of death 1830]; 19th-c. French painter, illustrator, and engraver)
    • found: BnF authority record 14065606, 11 July 2014: (preferred form: Sève, Jacques-Eustache de, 1790-1830; illustrator, engraver and draftsman; son of Jacques de sève, active 1742-1788; the numerous plates cited in 910 fields, all from Buffon, appear to represent a mixture of his and his father's work)
