Volumes 15 through 32 of Edwards’s Botanical Register have hundreds of beautiful illustrations that were printed from copper engravings; volume 33’s illustrations were produced from lithographs and hand-colored. Along with several others, both Lindley and Edwards produced illustrations for this series.
Arabische Korallen (1876) by Ernst Haeckel is one of his lesser known publications. Written in German, this book blends scientific explorations of Red Sea coral and travel observations and anecdotes about life in Egypt.
Frontispiece from Arabische Korallen. Inclusion of decorative title pages like this one was a common practice in historical natural history publications.
