These prints are from a virtually unknown work that remains absent from the standard bibliographies. This work covers the official botanical material medica of the Prussian pharmacopoeia, and was intended for doctors, pharmacists, and herbalists. The text describes the plants, complete with synonyms, references, medical uses, prescriptions and methods of preparation. Each plant was also illustrated with a colored engraved plate, signed F.Kirchner. There is only one imperfect copy of this work recorded, it contains only half of the original 229 plates and resides in the Columbia University Health Sciences Library.
