As described by Phyllis Lucas Gallery/Old Print Center

This hand-colored copperplate engraving from Germany shows a frontal view of Pimpinella, a highly aromatic plant often used to treat bladder and kidney stones. Although printed in 1719, the style 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.
