Description:

Engraving, printed in colours with additional hand colouring. Very good condition. A small waterstain to the lower left corner, weel outside of the printed area. A fine image from one of the first works to use colour printing successfully, and the first published work to include work by the greatest botanical artist of the eighteenth century: Georg Dionysius Ehret. This fine plate comes from Weinmann's magnum opus 'Phytanthoza Iconographia' (Regensburg: 1737-1745), a work which represented a major technical and artistic advance over its precursors, Martyn's 'Historia plantarum rariorum' and the Society of Gardeners' 'Catalogus plantarum'. The work was based on Weinmann's collection of plants and was financed by him. The botanical drawings from which the plates are taken are mainly by Ehret, his first published work, and by N. Asamin, a talented young female artist. Weinmann's work is highly valued for the undoubted artistic standard of the plates, and the individual plates represent an extremely valuable record of the plant kingdom as it was understood and classified in the period just preceding the introduction of Linnaeus' revolutionary system of classification.
