A beautifully hand-coloured lightographic print, illustrated by Ignaz Stenzel, in Daniel Wanger's work "Pharmaceutisch-Medizinische Botanik", Published during1828-1830. Condition EXCELLENT.

These rare hand-colored lithographs are from the work entitled Pharmaceutisch-Medizinische Botanik written by Daniel Wagner, meticulously illustrated by Ignaz Stenzel, and published in 1828-1830 in Vienna. Though it is a delightful work, Botanik is surprisingly unknown, being unmentioned by several famous catalogs of botanical prints, including those by Blunt and Dunthorne. “It undoubtedly contains [Stenzel’s] best botanical illustrations and brings to an appropriate and glorious conclusion the succession of great Viennese botanical artists initiated by Jacquin.” (Sotherby's Magnificent Botanical Books) They are on top-quality woven paper.
