This is an antique engraving of different kinds of food/agricultural plants, from Meyers Konversationslexikon, published in the 1890s.
Intricately detailed, this print shows:
1. Dioscorea Batatas - Nagaimo, Yamaimo, Chinese yam, Japanese mountain yam, 2. Maranta arundinacea - Arrowroot, 3. Lathyrus tuberosus - Tuberous Pea, Earthnut Pea or Aardaker, 4. Ipomoea batatas - Sweet potato, 5. Manihot utilissima - Cassava, Yuca or Manioc, 6. Metroxylon Rumphii - Sago palm, 7. Cycas revoluta - Sago cycad, 8. Colocasia esculenta - Taro or Eddoe
