Johann Wilhelm Weinmann was an apothecary who established a botanic garden in Regensburg and set about producing a highly detailed catalogue of plants and their uses, with illustrations commissioned from some of the finest engravers of the time. The resulting Phytanthoza Iconographia is an immense work, contained within several volumes published between 1737 and 1745. It features no fewer than 1,025 beautiful colour plates, many of which are fruit and vegetables that can also be seen in A Cornucopia of Fruit & Vegetables by Bodleian Library Publishing. Arch.Nat. hist. G5-12
