"Fragmenta Botanica, figuris coloratis illustrata :ab anno 1800 ad annum 1809 per sex fasciculos edita /opera et sumptibus Nicolai Josephi Jacquin" at Botanicus.
An easy way to see thumbnails of the illustrations - Illustrated Garden.
Splicing screencaps together whiled away a wet sunday arvo'. I posted a couple of humble Oxalis images by Jacquin previously. I wouldn't describe his approach as dispassionate necessarily, but Jacquin treats his subject matter equally, whether it's a rose or a weed. Elegance for all.
