Solanum stelligerum

This antique botanical print is from Smith's work "Exotic Botany" and was made in 1806. The engravings were based on drawings by a renowned illustrator of natural history works about botany, conchology and fossils. He also wrote a book on colors. This is an original antique print made by printing from an engraved copper printing plate onto hand made paper. The hand painted coloring is original and excellent. The date 1806 is engraved in small text in the lower margin. It is in very good condition for a 200 year old print. The paper has a light tan tone.
