English: Flora Batava, illustrations of all plants in the Netherlands, was a long series issued in instalments with 461 issues with 2,240 plates published by the firm of Sepp (Amsterdam) between 1800 and 1934. Christiaan Sepp drew and engraved many of the early illustrations, Jan Kops wrote observations, and Sepp's son Jan Christian continued their work. When the Sepp firm went out of business in 1868, the project was continued by the firms of De Breuk & Smits (Leiden), Vincent Loosjes (Haarlem) and Martinus Nijhoff (The Hague). Through the century, the technique of botanical illustrations changed from copper plates to lithographs, and chromolithography. The original 232 subscribers never lived to receive the last instalment. This work is considered to be a Dutch book monument.
