Lilio phodel, Lute - Phalangium Allobrogicum parui lilij forma ... - Copper engraving, old coloured by hand, refreshed. Plate 47 from: Florilegium, Frankfurt-am-Main, 1612. Plate mark: 33.5x21cm, sheet size: 40.5x27 cm, light age-tone.

In 1612, Emanuel Sweert (1552-1612), a Dutch florist, issued this florilegium at Frankfurt-am-Main, with engravings that he copied from de Bry's "Florilegium" of 1611. The work served as both a picture-book of plants and a sale catalogue of the plants that he stocked and which could be purchased at the stall he rented at the Frankfurt Fair.
