Online link to Goethe archetypal plant illustration?

brooz(z10)October 8, 2006

I'm looking for a Goethe illustration of the evolutionary development of plants (jpg). The illustration is the very first in Anthony Huxley's "Plant and Planet". I know this obscure, but when in doubt ... ask other plant people, right?

Here is a link that might be useful:

Schweet! I found it after a search with the words 'goethe' and 'naturelle'.

Thanks for replying, albert 135.
