About this Item

Mezzotint, on laid paper. Some light marginal spotting and surface soiling. An important mezzotint portrait by and after Johann Jakob Haid, of the author of one of the greatest of all botanical books. Johann Jakob Haid came from a German family of artists and printmakers. Haid worked initially with the animal painter Johann Elias Ridinger, but he soon went on to found a well-known publishing house in Augsburg. This portrait is from a series which pictured all those most closely involved in the publication of Trew's Plantae Selectae , and was originally bound into that great botanical work. Dr. Trew (1695-1769) was a Nuremberg physician, scholar, botanist and collector whose greatest contribution to the worlds of art and botany was his patronage of Georg Ehret and publication of Plantae Selectae and Hortus Nitidissimus. All of Plantae Selectae and much of Hortus . are engravings after drawings by Ehret. Bookseller Inventory # 21620
