This is a reproduction of a rare Johann Theodor de Bry print called Botanical, Iris Plate 40, Copperplate Engraving, from 1612-1614.

(First published 1612-1614. Later editions, c. 1626, 1641-1647) with publisher's original hand colouring. Extremely fine copy by Matthaeus Merian, the elder (1593-1650) was de Bry's son-in-law.

18 years after de Bry's death, Merian produced an enlarged edition of his father-in-law's famous Florilegium Novatum. Merian almost doubled the number of plates, depicting exotic flowers and plants growing in the gardens in and around Frankfurt.
