Design History:
This design was part of the original series of forty-eight designs completed by October 1931 and was also included in later reprintings. The example images were taken with different cameras and under different lighting conditions. In fact, the printing techniques and ink colors of Version I and Version II copies are virtually identical, but the paper of the Version I copy illustrated here is toned. However, Version III copies typically do differ somewhat in printing technique and ink color from earlier version copies.

The silhouette of wf7 is also used as the background element in a supplemental set design, wfx4.

The design of the Amaryllis in the Hodo/Takemura Floral Series was closely copied from this print (see below)

Species Illustrated:
