These sharp stipple engraving are from the French medical reference book entitled Flore Medicale. The multi-volume publication was illustrated with images by Pierre Jean Francois Turpin which were engraved by Lambert, and authored by F. P. Chaumeton, J. L. M. Poiret, and J. B. Chambert. This “Nouv. publication” was published in Paris in 1828-1832 by C. L. F. Panckoucke.
Turpin was a man of great botanical talent. After meeting well-known botanist and botancial artist Alexandere Poiteau while stationed in Haiti with the French army, Turpin followed a path that led him to fame: “Pierre Jean François Turpin was possibly the greatest botanical genius of all the French botanical painters of his day.” (The Art of Botanical Illustration by Wilford Blunt. Collins: 1971)
