A magnificent (and beautifully preserved) sheet from Chatelain's Atlas Historique with three large, beautifully engraved illustrations of a coffee plant, a branch of a coffee plant with beans at various stages of development, and coffee leaves. Below the engravings is text describing the coffee plant and how it is cultivated and its beans harvested. A fascinating and splendidly rendered document on an important tropical crop.
