He was a prolific artist who illustrated many of the German botanical works of the 19th century. Jackson describes this work, a survey of plants used in the Prussian pharmacopoeia, as A thoroughly good book, probably the very best of its class; both in text and illustrations.

"Er bleibt für immer der geniale Schöpfer und Begründer der praktischen und wissenschaftlichen Pomologie. J.H. Knoop war der erste wahre und wirkliche Pomologe im wissenschaftliche richtigen Sinne des Wortes!" (Martini). The first work on apples and pears, Pomologia, became the most popular treatise on pomology in the eighteenth century and went through 3 Dutch editions and was translated into German and French, while the second work, Fructologia, is devoted to fruits other than apples and pears. The hand-coloured folded plates show the fruits on natural size. They were engraved by Jan C. Philips or Jacob Folkema after the original drawings of Knoop. The plates of Fructologia are unsigned.

Moraceae - Ficus 5 species
From: Duidelyke vertoning, eeniger duizend in alle vier waerelds deelen wassende bomen, stammen, kruiden, bloemen, vruchten, en uitwassen, &c. by Johann Wilhelm Weinmann.
Amsterdam, Zacharias Romberg, [1746], plate 508. Colour-printed mezzoprint by Bartholomäus Seuter finished by hand (sheet 245 x 385 mm; impression 210 x 328 mm). Text enclosed.
€ 230
Weinmann (1683-1741) was a Regensburg apothecary who organised this massive work, which was published from 1737-1745 and contained over a thousand colour-printed mezzoprint plates representing thousands of plants. The mezzotint process used had been invented by Johann Teyler in the Netherlands around 1688. As practised here by Bartholomäus Seuter (1678-1754) and Johann Elias Ridinger (1698-1767), it was really a combination of etching and mezzotint, which made possible delicate lines and a very fine grain. The addition of handtinting brought about unusual and subtle effects. Some of the best work was done in later volumes by Johann Jakob Haid (1704-1767), who also provides portraits of Weinmann and Bieler (Hunt). The plates are after drawings by Georg Dionysus Ehret, his first published botanical illustrations (although unsigned), N. Asamin and others. Probably from the Dutch edition, which is preferably to the German one Phytanthoza iconographia, as the quality of the paper and finishing is much higher.
