We are enchanted with these beautiful originally hand-colored
coral prints from one of the
earliest works on corals, Die Pflanzenthiere in
Ubbildungen nach der Natur by Eugenius Johann Christoph
Esper, published in Nuremberg 1791.
It is one of the rarest of all the coral works in the
world, with only a few known copies in the hands of
libraries. There is no other coral work of such
completeness with original hand coloring from the
1700s. This represents an
extraordinary opportunity for the collector of such
Each print is on fine, creamy, hand made chain
lined paper measuring approximately 8 1/4 inches by 10 inches. There is no descriptive text, but a copy of
the title page will accompany these authentic antique
prints with original hand coloring. Each print is a
dynamic portrayal of a species of coral, realistically
capturing the plant as it would be in the ocean, with
the vibrant original hand coloring enhancing the effect.
