    As described by Phyllis Lucas Gallery/Old Print Center

    A hand-colored copperplate engraving from Germany showing a frontal view of Salvia sclera, a herbaceous perennial often used to treat eye infections. Although printed in 1719, the composition is reminiscent of the botanical prints of Basilius Besler from his masterwork "Hortus Eysttensis," first published in 1613. The elaborate background reflects the emergence of European landscape painting and the importance of herbs in culinary culture, alchemy, and medicine at that time.
