Dragon's Blood – Calamus draco

Some medieval encyclopedias claimed that it was the blood of elephants and dragons who had died in battle (it's actually the resin from the tree)

This is an genuine antique chromolithograph from Kohler's Medicinal Plants which was published in 1890 by Hermann Kohler. In an era of travel and exploration, plants from around the world were being collected and bought back to Europe and eagerly studied by botanists and horticulturalists. 

This paper is mid-weight creamy white, image on one side, blank on the reverse side. The condition is excellent.
