by DeBry, Johann

Superb De Bry botanical antique print, Lilium Persicum.

Stunning later hand-colour on this 17th century copperplate engraving by Johann Theodor De Bry (1561-1623) for his Florilegium Novum, first published in Oppenheim, Germany circa 1612. 

This beautiful botanical engraving is by Johann DeBry who was inspired by Vallet and based his plates largely upon Vallet's work (although DeBry engraved from the previously published plates so the images are reversed). DeBry also used both Besler’s and Van de Passe’s publications as a guide - once again altering the detail only slightly. DeBry worked with his son-in-law, engraver Matthaus Merian (1593-1650). and his work was so successful that an enlarged edition called Florilegum Renovatum was published in Frankfurt in1641 by Merian. Merian's engraved plates were also included circa 1770 in Requeil de Plantes desinées et gravées anciennement a Francfort.

Page size 34 x 21cm (13 3/8 x 8 1/4 inches). To plate mark measures 25 x 16cm (9 7/8 x 6 1/4 inches).
