About

This 17th century hand-colored engraving of a lemon entitled "Limon Straitus Amalphitanus" is Plate 249 from Giovanni Baptista Ferrari's publication "Hesperides, sive, De Malorum Aureorum Cultura Etusa Libri Quatuor", (Hesperides, or Concerning the Cultivation and Uses of the Golden Apple in Four Volumes), one of the earliest books on citrus fruit, published by Herman Scheus in Rome in 1648. The print is framed in an attractive decorative gold gilded wood frame with a scalloped pattern along the inner and outer edges and a cream-colored mat. The print is in excellent condition. Another Ferrari 17th century engraving of lemons is available on 1stDibs, LU117324286371, which is identically framed and matted. The pair would make a handsome display. A discount is available for purchase of both prints. Giovanni Baptista Ferrari (1584-1655) was a Jesuit, a professor, a botanist, an artist and a friend of Galileo. His treatise on the cultivation and taxonomy of citrus fruit based much of its design on the mythical garden of Hesperidies. It is considered one of the most beautiful, scientifically accurate and decorative botanical works of seventeenth-century Europe. The famous Dutch artist Cornelis Bloemaert produced many of the copperplate engravings.
