This originally hand-colored botanical engraving is from Gottlied Tobias Wilhelm’s Unterhaltungen aus der Naturgeschichte or Natural History. The work was published in Augsburg by Engelbrecht between 1810 and 1821. The engravings were completed by Paul Martin Wilhelm, brother of the author, and others. Wilhelm’s work was a fine example of the encyclopaedic science of the period. The work’s main goal was education, thus it’s compact publication.
