{rtf1ansideff0{fonttbl {f0fswiss MS Sans Serif;}}pardf0fs20 A striking mezzotint portrait of Johann Jakob Haid, by Haid's son and business partner, after the 1766 original portrait by Graff.}

Johann Jakob Haid came from a German family of artists and printmakers. Haid worked initially with the animal painter Johann Elias Ridinger, but he soon went on to found a well-known publishing house in Augsburg.

This portrait is from a series which pictured those most closely involved in the publication of Trew's Plantae Selectae , and was originally bound into that great botanical work.
