This is a beautiful engraving of the french botanist Plumier . "Botanicum Americanum seu Historia Plantarum in americanis Insulis
nascentium " 1689 - 1697
It's the aroids paradise .

I dedicate for your dear friends Tricia and Julius.

Dear Genevieve:

These paintings by Plumier
were very important because they were used in some cases by Jacquin to typify
his new species he collected in the Caribbean.
Quite a nice painting. Where did you find this copy?
