        Iris bulbosa Anglicana candido flore [Biflorous white English Iris]; Polygonatum angusti folys [Mountain Solomon's Seal]

      Eichstatt 1640 - Basil Besler published " Hortus Eystettensis" , the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years from the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and "exotic" plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler and his brothers were familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of the different plants. Besler had the good fortune to have lived at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done. Hand-coloured engraving.

        Iasminum flor. alb. [White jasmine]; Iasminum flor. lut. [Fragrant jasmine]; Acanthus Leuis [Acanthus or bear's breech]

      Eichstatt 1640 - Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done. Hand-coloured engraving. In good condition with the exception of a natural printer's crease across the top left corner of sheet and being trimmed to platemark on right side.
