18th Century Miller Engravings

TIGER LILY ART
12 18th Century Philip Miller engravings dating from the original German edition Abbildungen der nützlichsten, schönsten und seltensten Pflanzen welche in seinem Gärtner-Lexicon vorkommen published in Nürnberg 1768-1782.

Philip Miller was a Scottish author and botanist who was made head gardener of the Chelsea Physic Garden in 1722. He gained an international reputation for the Garden, which held the largest collection of plants in Europe under his stewardship, due to his horticultural skill and botanical abilities (his experiments in 1751 were the first to demonstrate the importance of insects in pollination.)

Many of the prints were engraved from drawings by Richard Lancake and two of the leading botanical artists and engravers of the period, Georg Ehret and Johann Weinmann.

Presented in bespoke frames with UV70 glass which cuts reflection and affords the prints some protection.

For TIGER LILY ART what began as a hobby has become a small family run business. Based in Surrey, we deal in sets of antique prints and engravings of largely botanical and natural history subjects, but also items which we like and would be happy to hang at home. In fact, this is our guiding principle - we stock nothing that we would not be happy to own ourselves. 

We are passionate about what we do and all our prints and engravings are in excellent condition bearing in mind their age, are presented in bespoke frames behind UV70 or Tru Vu glass. Mounts are chosen with care to enhance the subject matter and all sets are put together so that they hang well together. Inspection is welcome by appointment.

We are happy to discuss specific requirements and will split sets in certain instances, should what we have on offer not work in the chosen position.

We have a large portfolio of unframed items too which can be framed to order.
