    1. Maria Sibylla Merian was a naturalist and scientific illustrator who studied plants and insects and made detailed paintings about them Her detailed observations and documentation of the metamorphosis of the butterfly make her a significant contributor to entomology.

    2. Facsmile of the 17th century artist and scientist Maria Sibylla Merian's beautiful engravings, hand-colored, of flowers and insects. Her first work. The illustrations show flowers in bud, full bloom and decay, often with a gorgeous butterfly or caterpillar. There are garlands and bouquets as well, all beautifully colored. A wonderful source of inspiration for design, as well as a pleasure to examine for its own sake. A biography of Merian and an analysis of the book are included. Highly recommen [...]

    3. This is a facsimile edition of the original New Book of Flowers with a short autobiographical sketch at the end of the volume and an additional evaluation of Merian's work from an artistic perspective. There is a short history of floral painting and the importance of and special meaning given to plants and flowers during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.I would one day like to have a copy of this book.
