We are pleased to offer a selection of hand colored copper engravings from the 1796 folio edition of Naauwkeurige Beschryving Der Aardgewassen by Abraham Munting, This is a rare and unusual work depicting plants set in or floating  above distant  landscapes.  The plants are often larger than life, with decorative scrolls presenting their Latin names.  The surreal and tranquil scenes are enchanting, and the prints are superbly decorative and highly sought after.    

Abraham Munting, born in 1726 in Groningen, was a Dutch physician, professor, & internationally renowned botanist. He became director of the Hortus Botanicus at Groningen at the age of 32 and served in that position until his death in 1783.

The prints are in excellent condition on soft creamy chain-lined paper. They have been beautifully hand colored in England by one of the few remaining professional colorists whose specialty is botanicals. Each print measures approximately 11 inches wide by 17 1/2 inches long, with strong plate marks. There is no descriptive text. Please inspect the images carefully as they are quite accurate. They are more than 300 years old!
