Description

Pisum maritimum. The Sea Pea, Lathyrus japonicus, 1825.
Herbaceous, perennial plant, native of seashore among stones or sand. Carl Linnaeus made a mistake when he named it Pisum maritimum. The species’ pods and seeds have been used in years of crop failure as human food. Legumes are very nutritious for humans. In 1555 the poor people of Suffolk used them at the time of famine from a failure in the harvest.
Copperplate engraving, hand coloured, by John Pass, from Encyclopaedia Londinensis, compiled by John Wilkes, 1825.

Size 20 x 26. cms. Condition Very Good.
