Biographical/historical: Books meant to distinguish different kinds of plants appear very early in the history of books and their production. Rapidly developing printing technology, a revolutionary empirical spirit and the plants discovered in New World explorations in the 16th century, drove the development of books illustrated with more naturalistic and accurate depictions.The outstanding works of Dutch, English and French botanical illustrators are among the highlights of European publishing in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, when various forms of metal engraving found a place in the manufacture of books.
