P.J. Buchoz Herbier Artificiel Botanical Prints 1783

Born in Metz (France) in 1731, Buchoz was a physician & lawyer by training, as well as a passionate naturalist. He was physician to many prominent individuals, including the King of Poland, the brother of the King of France & the Duke of Artois. He was an enthusiastic and prolific publisher of botanical works including Herbier Artificiel, Histoire du Regne Vegetal, Histoire Universelle, Le Jardin d'Eden & Collections Precieuse et Eluminees des Fleurs. Early on, he recognized the significance of Japanese & Chinese drawing techniques, and was the first to publish drawings by Asian artists, a good century before the passion for the Orient overtook Europe.

It is from Herbier Artificiel that we are pleased to offer a selection of original engravings, in the characteristic exotic style so distinctive of Buchoz. These prints are all ORIGINAL copper engravings from 1783 that have been exquisitely hand colored by one of the few remaining professional colorists in England whose specialty is botanical prints, and following descriptions & images of the species illustrated. Each print measures approximately 9 3/4 inches by 15 3/4 inches.

The condition of the plates is excellent, with the paper being a fine, watermarked chain lined type with strong plate marks. There are few fox marks or other blemishes & the paper is a creamy white. A copy of the title page will be included with each print. These prints are nearly 225 years old.
