Copper engraving, later hand colored. Hand colored copper engraving, published in Paris ca. 1623-27 in the famous flower book 'Theatrum Florae'. Daniel Rabel's flower book is one of the most beautiful sets of engravings of flowers ever published. Some of these fine engraved flower prints are additional ornated with various butterflies and insects. The style of the engraving is very similar to the 'de Bry' flower plates, although Rabel's works is occasionally found to be bound to the works by Maria Sybilla Merian. The flower prints by Daniel Rabel can be regarded as one of the most beautiful and decorative sets of large engravings of flowers ever produced in that period.
