Description: Antique botany print titled 'Veronica Spicata minor (..)'. Copper engraving of spike speedwell and various other 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.
