Antique Botanical Prints by De Bry

 

Johann Theodor De Bry (1528-1598) came from Liege, Belgium to Frankfurt on the Main and founded about 1570 an important publishing house. The famous Florilegium Novum, a comprehensive flower book was first published between 1612 and 1618. The copper engravings we are offering are in very good condition in beautiful modern coloring and are mostly from the 1641 edition, published by Matthäus Merian, Johann Theodor De Bry's son-in-law. The complete title: Florilegium renovatum et auctum: variorum Maximeque rariorum germanium, florum ac platarum. The beauty of the prints is beyond comprehensible description. If you are interested we suggest that you click for viewing. The De Bry number under the image is the plate number on each page. Left margins are narrower. Some have been reinforced. Complete margins are not shown below. Prints have normal age toning and a few very minor spots. Special flaws are mentioned below.

The page size: Ca. 31.2 x 19 cm ( 12.3 x 7.5 ") unless otherwise given.
