The Royal Horticultural Society Address Book 2003 Summary


The Royal Horticultural Society Address Book 2003 by Brent Elliott

The illustrations for this RHS address book are taken from possibly the finest of early colour-printed books and the first botanical work to be published in colour on continental Europe. The "Phytanthoza Iconographia" was complied by Johann Wilhelm Weinmann (1683-1741), a wealthy apothecary and collector of botanical art from Regensburg, Germany. Although none of the artists is named, the most famous artist working for Weinmann was Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708-1770), one of the greatest botanical illustrators, and some of the plates in the "Phytanthoza" may be based on his drawings. A selection of these coloured mezzotint engravings illustrates this address book.
