Jack-in-the-Pulpit (Arum Triphyllum) by William Curtis (1746-1799), copper plate engraving with original hand-coloring, 8.25 x 5 inches, 17.25 x 13.25 inches framed. William Curtis was born in Alton Hampshire, England and began his career as an apothecary before turning his attention to botany and other natural history. He established the Botanical Magazine in 1787, the first popular horticultural publication to use fine hand-colored plates. This plate is from the magazine published in London, c. 1787ff.
