¶ Fourth printing of this sensational volume. Intended as models for his sculpturing and as teaching aids (Blossfeldt was then a sculptor and art teacher), these botanical photographs came first to the public’s attention in 1928, when they would be championed as part of the "New Objectivity" wave in German art, wherein photographers were abandoning the soft-focus, impressionistic style in favor of a direct-lighting, sharp-focus approach. "Blossfeldt composed his images with deliberation, leaving nothing to chance… They reflect a poetic interpretation of the relationship between nature and art. In the infinite variety of forms in the plant world, Blossfeldt revealed shapes and structures that resemble the forms of man’s architectural and other artistic styles throughout history, suggesting that art mirrors nature’s designs. And nature, because it gives its creations specific essential and efficient forms to assure their continued existence, can be seen as creating its own art, a functional art based on survival" (E. Weyhe). Freitag 796.

¶ "Henry Meige, Richer, and other pupils of Charcot published many valuable studies of the constitutional aspects of nervous diseases in the above work, an album unique in the history of medicine and of great value for the study of nervous diseases." The successor to the Iconographie Photographique, the Nouvelle Iconographie includes hundreds of articles by the leading French neurologists, psychiatrists and physiologists of the turn of the century, including Charcot, Paul Richer, Charles Richer, Pierre Marie, Henri Meige, Gilles de la Tourette. Its original purpose was, as the editors explain in the first volume, "to turn to account the many visual documents which daily accumulate in the albums of the Salpętričre… Whenever a malady objectively presents some interest… it is immediately drawn or photographed and one is able to say that with the aid of instantaneous photography one is able to set down and compose tenderly the abnormal movements, for example, that had been impossible to analyse with all the precision desirable in conducting a clinical examination. These negatives form today, at the Salpętričre, a collection of great importance." Consequent to its purpose, the set, rich in bizarre photographs, X-rays, drawings, woodcuts and other visual materials illustrative of symptoms discussed in the articles, is "unique in the history of medicine" (Garrison, History of Neurology, p.291).
