About Botanical Illustration: The Essential Reference:

Comprising more than 500 years of printed botanical illustrations, this stunning compendium of black-and-white and color images begins with medieval illuminated manuscripts and early woodcuts. Latter-day sources include Gerard’s Herbal, the flower prints of Redoute and other hand-colored lithographs of the 19th century, Verneuil’s Art Nouveau florals, and many others. Detailed bibliographies and artist biographies make this volume a valuable reference tool.
