We are pleased to offer a selection of hand colored copper
engravings from the 1696 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 1626 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 1683.
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 16 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!
