Antique Botany Print of a Mimulus Plant by Hoffmann (1865)



Description: Antique botany print of a Mimulus plant, a plant genus in the family Phrymaceae, which was traditionally placed in family Scrophulariaceae. The genus now contains only seven species, two native to eastern North America and the other five native to Asia, Australia, Africa, or Madagascar. In the past, about 150 species were placed in this genus, most of which have since been assigned to other genera, the majority to genus Erythranthe. This print originates from ‘Das Buch der Welt‘ by Carl Hoffmann.


Artists and Engravers: Lithographs by Engelhorn and Hochdanz.
