The Botanical encyclopedia prints on this page are from Konversations-Lexicon, a "dictionary of general knowledge" published in Germany in the 1800s.

The prints are noteworthy for their detail, richness in coloring through the chromolithograph printing process, and diversity of botanical subjects.

The dictionary was originally published by Joseph Meyer (1796-1856) who founded the Bibliopgraphisches Instituit in 1826.  His aim was to publish a universal encyclopedia for a broad audience including people with a general knowledge of many subjects as well as businesspeople, technicians and scholars.
