Tobacco, Nicotiana tabacum KOH16 $55
Each print measures
approximately 8 3/4 inches wide by 11 1/2 inches long
We are pleased to offer prints from Kohler’s “Medizinal-Pflanzen” of 1898, a work on medical botany that drew from the pharmacopoeias of the Europe & the United States. It is remarkable in medical botany works for the beauty of the illustrations.
The work is a fascinating glimpse at the practice of medicine in the late 1800’s, with the pharmacopoeia of the day still consisting entirely of herbs and plants. The age of antibiotics and other wonder drugs was still to come & in this time of increasingly drug resistant diseases, perhaps these works will once again have value beyond the beauty of the illustrations & the historical aspects of the development pharmaceuticals. The plants are carefully described from a botanical and medical perspective.
Each print is small folio, measuring approximately 8 3/4 inches by 11 1/2 inches, on high quality, heavy paper. The prints are chromolithographs, enhanced with gum Arabic & in brilliant color. There is no foxing, though on some there may be slightly creamy paper or faint edge toning. There are many unusual and beautiful images. A copy of the title page is included with each print.
