TAGEBUCH EINER REISE VOM MISSISSIPPI NACH DEN KUSTEN DER SUDSEE. Von Balduin Mollhausen. Eingefuhrt von Alexander von Humboldt. Mit 13 Illustrationen in Oelfarben-und Tondruck, 10 Holzschnitten und 1 Karte. Leipzig, H. Mendelssohn, 1858.

"Cereus giganteus Engelmann," a color lithograph attributed to "Anst v. Winckelmann & Sohne" of Berlin, Germany offers an imposing view of cacti from the southwestern United States.

In this image Native Americans serve a supporting role, providing perspective for the giant cactus plants. One can only imagine what impressions of western America a European reader would derive from these striking illustrations.
