Description: Antique botany print titled 'Kali Aizoides canariense procumbens (..)'. Copper engraving of various plants. This print originates from 'Phytanthoza Iconographia' by J.W. Weinmann.

Artists and Engravers: Johann Wilhelm Weinmann, apothecary and botanist, is noted for his creation of the florilegium 'Phytanthoza iconographia' between 1737 and 1745, an ambitious project which resulted in eight folio volumes with more than 1,000 hand-coloured engravings of several thousand plants.
