Description: Botanical. Color mezzotint with hand coloring. Page measures 16.25" x 10.5".

Comments: Beautiful print from the four-volume study of flowers and plants, "Phytanthoza Iconographia" edited by Johann Weinmann between 1737 and 1745. Both accurate and beautiful, these prints were the first botanical color mezzotints, a revolutionary method that allowed for subtlety and detail. Weinmann (1683-1741) was a renowned pharmicist whose plant studies earned him scientific acclaim among botanists. He employed several botanical artists and engravers to assist with the project including Bartholomäus Seuter, Johann Ridinger, Johann Jakob Haid and most notably Georg Dionysus Ehret. Weinmann was the first to publish drawings by Ehret, but after a dispute over payment, gave him no credit. Ehret later became a dominant figure in the botanical world under the patronage of Dr. Jakob Trew. Slight wrinkle to right edge, original. Light stain to bottom edge. Pin holes along left edge from original binding. Full original margins. Please visit our gallery for more Weinmann prints.

The book was in my mailbox when I got home last night. Wonderful condition for a 40-year-old book. Nice condition in any case. I am very pleased. Thank you. A bit of trivia: You are only the second seller in six years not to tape the pull strip so it can’t be used! Congratulations. Take care, and many, many thanks. I was really looking forward to this one, and you didn’t disappoint. - G.W.
