Details: POHL, Johann Baptist Emanuel (1782-1834). A PAIR: Moldenhaivera cuprea & Vochysia micrantha. [Pl. 160 &112]. [Vienna: 1826-1833]. Lithographs, coloured by hand, by Wilhelm Sandler. Very good condition. Image size (including text): 14 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches. Sheet size: 20 3/4 x 13 3/4 inches.
Very fine images of two Brazilian exotic plants from the de luxe large paper hand-coloured issue of Pohl's masterpiece.
Pohl's magisterial Plantarum Brasiliae, one of the most important Brazilian floras, was based on the observations and collections that Pohl made while travelling in Brazil from 1817 to 1821. Published upon his return to Vienna, the plates were issued as outline lithographic drawings, or, as here, fully hand-coloured and printed on larger sheets of paper. Pohl was curator of the Vienna Natural History Museum and the Vienna Brasilian Museum.
