Christop Jakob Trew, respected burgher of Nuremberg, avid collector, Count Palatine of the Holy Roman Empire and recipient of many other honours, sponsored among his many other activities, the publication of two herbals. One was the work of Elizabeth Blackwell, the daughter of an Aberdeen hosier; the other was painted by Georg Dionysius Ehret, an ambitious man, who, from being a gardener, succeeded in becoming a botanical artist. Over one hundred of the species depicted in the two herbals are reproduced in this book in full colour. The historical context in which whey were painted is evoked by unusual details about the period and by the thoughts, botanical and otherwise, of some contemporary and earlier figures. The result is a wealth of vivid insights in to the love for plants and flowers which was so typical of the eighteenth century when scientific learning flourished. . 1st Edition. Cloth Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. Illus. by Blackwell, Elizabeth; Ehret, Georg Dionysius. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
