Plant studies

Los 4057

Plant studies: "48. Pfennig-Kraut" (Lysimachia nummularia); "49. Hew-Hechel" (Ononis spinosa); "53. Ysop" (Hyssopus officinalis). Johannes Hieronymus Kniphof. (1704-1763). 3 Naturselbstdrucke (nature prints) on thin laid paper. Each circa 34 x 20,5 cm. From the first edition of "Johannes Hieronymus Kniphof's Botanica Originali das ist Lebendig-Officinal-Kräuterbuch ... ", Erfurt, J.M. Funcke, 1733.

Johann Hieronymus Kniphof attended the Ratsgymnasium in Erfurt in 1719/22 and then studied in Jena and Erfurt. In 1737 he became professor of medicine, in 1747 dean of the medical faculty and in 1761 rector of the University of Erfurt. He held this office until his death.
Kniphof is mainly known as a botanist. He created a large herbarium which is considered a classic of nature self-printing. His plant prints attracted a lot of attention. Although Kniphof was not the inventor of this printing technique, he did continue to comprehensively develop it. His main work "Botanica in Originali Pharmaceutica", a "Living Officinal Herb Book", was published in 1733.
Still today little is known about the then new preparation and printing technique used by Kniphof, as he did not reveal any details about the process. It remains Kniphof's secret how, for example, he was able to print round objects such as cabbages, turnips and radishes from the original objects. – Paper time-stained, one print with backed tear (time-staining from backing paper) in lower right, otherwise strong impressions with detailed, bright coloring and in good condition.
