We are delighted to offer yet another treasure from the world of botanical illustration, these rare and whimsical copper engravings from Volckamer’s Nuernbergische Hesperides, circa 1708.

Johann Christopher Volckamer was a wealthy Germany merchant with an orangerie where he grew exotic citrus fruits.  His resources enabled him to engage a talented team of artists & engravers to produce these superb prints.  According to Blunt, the model for this work was Ferrarius’s Hesperides (Rome, 1646), but Volckamer has included in his plates delightful views of the gardens and palaces of Europe, showcasing the baroque architecture of the period.

The prints are in excellent condition on strong chain-lined watermarked paper with each print measuring approximately 8 1/2 inches by 14 inches.  There is no descriptive text, or title page.  Please inspect the images carefully as they are quite accurate. They have been magnificently hand colored by the greatest of the few remaining professional Italian colorists.
