Joseph Jacob Pleck (1735 - 1807) was an Austrian physician and the founder of modern dermatology. - He was born the son of a Viennese bookbinder and studied medicine; he served in the Seven Years' War despite his unfinished education and training as a regimental doctor. In 1770, he was appointed by Empress Maria Theresa professor of surgery and obstetrics at the University of Trnava; from there he went on to Budapest and in 1785, was finally appointed professor of chemistry and botany at the Military-Medical Academy in Vienna (Josephinum). - From 1788, he published seven volumes of his 'Icones plantarum medicinalium'. In his work, which contains a total of 758 coloured copper engravings, he described the medical use of all of the then known herbal plants, according to Linnaeus' new botanical classification system, and wrote all the text in German and Latin.
Plates by Plenck hardly ever are offered for sale and are notoriously rare!
