These beautiful hand colored engravings have been selected from a French work entitled Naauwkeurige Beschryving der Aardgewassen, published in Leiden and Utrecht (Pieter vander Aa and Francois Halma) in 1696 under the supervision of Abraham Munting.

Abraham Munting (1626-1683) was professor of botany at the University of Groningen and considerably enlarged the botanical garden his father Henricus Munting had founded. It was known as the "Paradise of Groningen" and became one of the most extensive gardens of the period.  "Munting wrote a number of works on medical-botanical topics, but his posthumously published 'opus magnum', the 'Naauwkeurige', enjoyed particular success, at least in part due to the novelty of the plates, which in a radical departure from the iconography of the traditional florilegium, presented its plant species against a charming series of landscape backgrounds.
The illustrations are remarkable for their elegance and originality. The sophisticated title-page was designed by an artist of considerable merit, Jan Goeree (1670-1731).

Each plate shows a different plant in flower, including many exotic species from America and other distant lands. The plant dominates the foreground, filling the entire page, often with a detail of the fruit or flower presented on a smaller scale. In some cases the plants are presented 'à trompe l'oeil', while in others they have been arranged in decorated urns. Sometimes gardening tools are depicted as well. The name of each plant appears written on an elegantly fluttering ribbon or cartouche, or on a crumbling marble plaque" (An Oak Spring Flora, 45). Only plate 201 is signed, bearing the name of Joseph Mulder (1659-1710) who engraved many of the plates of Maria Sibylla Merian's famous work on the insects of Surinam. Nissen BBI, 1429; Pritzel 6559.
