Botanical Study, Perfoliata by Elizabeth Blackwell
Elizabeth Blackwell (British, 1821-1910)
This page comes from Blackwell's book, "A Curious Herbal" (1737), which illustrated many odd-looking and unknown plants from the New World, and was designed as a reference work on medicinal plants for the use of physicians and apothecaries. This edition is from the German revised and enlarged format engraved by Nicolaus Friedrich Eisenberger and published by Dr. Christoph Jacob Trew.
