We are very pleased to present a wonderful selection of prints from Johann Weinmann’s
Phytanthoza Iconographia, 1737-1787. These are rare and beautiful
prints representing some of the most beautiful in this work of over 1,000 hand colored engravings. Johann Weinmann directed a famous pharmacy in Regensburg. His Phytanthoza Iconographia was a huge work in eight folio volumes which provided one of the most comprehensive references of the eighteenth century. The engraver, J.J. Haid printed many of the illustrations utilizing a mezzotint technique used by the Englishman, Kirkall. Each print measures approximately
10 1/4 inches wide by 17 1/4
inches long on a thick, high quality chain-lined, hand-made paper, watermarked & light creamy in color.
