PLATE L. 13

Hepatica triloba
Anemone hepatica

[Liverleaf wildflower]

Condition: Very Good/Excellent. There is some faint foxing in the upper part of the image. It does not really detract from the beauty of the print and, once matted and framed, would not be noticeable except on the closest examination. A charming example of Knorr's work that is now over 230 years old!
