EDITORS COMMENTS
Stag's Horn Clubmoss, Lycopodium clavatum, is a fascinating and intricately beautiful plant that has captured the attention of botanists, herbalists, and naturalists for centuries. This stunning handcoloured copperplate engraving is a testament to the exquisite detail and artistry of 19th-century botanical illustration. The Stag's Horn Clubmoss derives its common name from the distinctive, curved spikes that resemble the antlers of a stag. These spikes are actually modified leaves, which are covered in tiny, scale-like structures that give the plant a velvety texture. The plant itself is a small, evergreen, moss-like fern that grows in damp, shady areas. The medicinal properties of Stag's Horn Clubmoss have been known since ancient times. It was used by the Greeks and Romans for various ailments, including respiratory issues and as a diuretic. The plant contains several active compounds, including lycoxine and lycopodine, which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic effects. This beautiful illustration is taken from Dr. Willibald Artus' Handbook of all medical-pharmaceutical plants, published in Jena, Germany, in 1876. The meticulous attention to detail in the engraving allows us to appreciate the intricacies of this remarkable plant, which continues to fascinate and inspire us today.
