Item Description

Fantastic set of nine 18th Century botanical engravings by George Eberhard.
Presented in hand-painted and lacquered red reeded frames with hessian mounts and AR70 art glass for optimal clarity.
This first edition work was published in Amsterdam between 1741 and 1755. Each engraving is printed on chain-linked watermarked paper.
Herbarium Amboinense was one of the earliest works on East Indian flora. Eberhard's research led to further scientific discovery in the Maluku Islands, Indonesia, and their seas. The work was completed for publication by 1670, but the original illustrations were burned in a fire in 1687. Burmann collected and edited the documents and published the first volume in 1741 and continued publication until 1755.
A superb collection that would look fantastic within a bedroom or living room.
