These illustrations of tree leaves were published by A. Hunter in 1776. They were emgraved by the English engraver John Miller who was born in London around 1750. Miller devoted himself to designating a system of Linnaeus which was the classification of different varieties of plants and animals. Between 1770 and 1789 he illustrated and published two books on this subject. The set of eight prints published by ARC exemplifies the descriptive illustration required to convey accurately the character of different varieties of leafage from the Elm and Walnut trees to the Holly and Lime.
