'The hand of a boy with a distempered skin, and a branch of the common Service Tree'

A combined medical and botanical study, showing the hand of an unnamed son of Edward Lambert holding a branch of the wild service tree (Sorbus torminalis). The work had details of a cut specimen of the fruit and its seed, with a detail of the child's skin. Plate 212 from chapter 2 of Gleanings of natural history, exhibiting figures of quadrupeds, birds, insects, plants, &c..., by George Edwards, volume 1 (London, for the author, 1758). The boy was the son of Edward Lambert, whose family suffered from the inherited condition Ichthyosis hystrix. The plate is inscribed: "The Hand of a Boy with a distempered SKIN and the Common Servis û Sorbus torminalis se Gerald's Herbal by Johnson Page 1471. Published AD 1756. Geo.Edwards Del: et sculp."

Original: etching. 1756
