Three drawings in all. First drawing features large view of interior parts of plant with two smaller views along right edge. Details are highlighted in orangish-brown, yellow, and green. Second and third drawings folded along vertical edge with one drawing on p. [1] and another drawing on p. [3]. Drawing on p. [1] is similar to first drawing and features only one view with details in orangish-brown and green. Drawing on p. [3] includes six views of interior of plant, three large views and three very small views. Two of the large views are of stamen. Five of the views are detailed in color including orange, reddish-brown, yellow, and green.
Each of the three drawings features a different form of the same plant; the forms are labeled beneath the title.
This flowering plant, commonly known as the bog-bean or buckbean, can be found in wetlands and bogs in Asia, Europe, and North America.
