Many of the  plates  are engraved after drawings by Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708–1770) a botanist and entomologist,  known for his botanical illustrations.  Many of the pieces  were painted during Ehret's time under patronage to 3rd Earl of Bute and the Duchess of Portland. A vast number of species are displayed -- over 4,000 plants and flowers depicted on 1,025 plates.  Haid prints have a minute letter H base right corner , Seuter have an S unmarked are mainly by  Ehret

Johann Wilhelm Weinmann (1683-1741) was an influential pharmacist and botanist, director of the longest established pharmacy in Regensburg . He employed Ehret, who was then in his twenties, to make the drawings in Regensburg, many of which were engraved with a recently- developed printing process combining etching and mezzotint, allowing fine detail and subtle shading, which was enhanced by the hand-colouring.It features etching and mezzotint by Haid and Seuter. The Iconographia were the first botanical engravings to be printed in colour with finishing by hand some enhanced with gum arabic

Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708–1770) began his working life as a gardener's apprentice near Heidelberg. His first illustrations were in collaboration with Carl Linnaeus and George Clifford in 1735-1736. Clifford, a wealthy Dutch banker and governor of the Dutch East India Company was a keen botanist with a large herbarium.He had the income to attract the talents of botanists such as Linnaeus and artists like Ehret. Together at the Clifford estate, Hartecamp, which is located south of Haarlem in Heemstede near Bennebroek, they produced Hortus Cliffortianus in 1738.
 Working with Johann Wilhelm Weinmann, Ehret finished only 500 plates of a 1,000 plate book and moved to England where he illustrated many of the more spectacular plants that were in cultivation.
