ISBN: 281AIB1054190

Print, 6 x 3.5 inches, on sheet 9.5 x 6 inches. Handcolored. Guaiacum officinale is native to the West Indies and Florida. The plant's resin was used to treat coughs and arthritis. After Redoute, Turpin was, in the words of Wilford Blunt, the last word on botanical illustrators, 'possibly the greatest of all the French botanical painters of his day.' This judgement is borne out by the delicate forms of these engravings, which were finely printed using the stipple engraving technique pioneered by Redoute. Near fine handcolored engraving.
