Basilius Besler. Florilegium. The Book of Plants
DescriptionIn 367 exquisite plates, this treasure of botanical literature records the flowers of the palatial grounds at Eichstätt, Bavaria, once some of the most beautiful gardens in history. The illustrations are organized by season and, following the classification system used today, show plants belonging to a total of 90 families and covering 340 genera. “Given the scholarship and quality of the reproductions, this book is a bargain.” — Chicago Botanic Garden Book Review
