Martagon Constg. Martagon Constg. Serotinum. Plate 50.
Amsterdam: Florilegium, 1647 - Copper engraving. Hand coloured. Size: 20.5 x 34 cm (8 x 13½ inches). Wide margins, in fine condition. Beautiful plate of two flowering plants. The designs are beautifully balanced on the page and the captions elegantly inscribed. Emanuel Sweert was prefect of the gardens of the Emperor Rudolf II in Prague. His Florilegium was first printed in Frankfurt by Kempner in 1612 -1614. It was originally a sales catalogue for plants and bulbs from Sweert's gardens, to be sold at fairs in Frankfurt and Amsterdam, but now these very attractive engravings are regarded as fine examples of 17th century botanical illustration and are much collected.
