CDR-1263: SR Set: Botanical Illustration

Our collection of Botanical illustration ranges from the 15th century Book of Simple Medicines illustrated by Robinet Testard to the 18th century paintings of Pierre-Joseph Redouté who worked under the patronage of both Queen Marie Antoinette and Josephine Beauharnais, and to the 19th century work of Martin Johnson Heade who painted plants in their habitats. These and the many other fine illustrators represented here describe plants for the purposes of study and identification, exhibiting technical botanical knowledge and paying particular attention to fine details of leaves, flowers, buds, seeds and roots. Also included in the set are a few herbarium examples. April 2011
