The garden at Eichstätt : the book of plants by Basilius Besler( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This could well be the most famous botanical record ever committed to paper. A magnificent pictorial document of the flowers grown in the greatest German garden of its time. The Hortus Eystettensis is in a class of its own when it comes to the variety and range of flowers engraved. Under the supervision of Basilius Besler, a team of at least ten engravers worked on this massive project, translating in situ and specimen drawings faithfully to copper plates. Nearly four hundred years old, the book survived where the gardens did not. They were destroyed by invading Swedish troops in 1634. However in 1998 a reconstruction of the original garden opened to the public in Eichstatt. At two thirds the size of the original, this is a great book in every sense, and the first in a new series of facsimile reprints of the great books of human thought and accomplishment. Its reproductions are taken from a hand-painted edition, one of only a few still extant. In auction, the asking price for a first edition copy is half a million dollars. You can now enjoy its unique qualities for somewhat less

Pierre-Joseph Redouté : Selection of the most beautiful flowers, 1827-1833 = Auslese der schönsten Blumen, 1827-1833 = Choix des plus belles fleurs, 1827-1833 by Pierre-Joseph Redouté( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"He was known as the 'Raphael of flowers' and rightly so: Pierre-Joseph Redoute (1759-1840) devoted himself exclusively to the task of capturing the diversity of the flowering plants in naturalistic watercolor paintings. He worked in Paris as a botanical illustrator for rich and influential patrons for nearly half a century, during which he documented remarkable, rare plants and flora new to the science of his day. Nearly all of his watercolors were published as copper engravings in large formats and launched on the market with botanical descriptions as sumptuously designed publications in small editions that are today extremely rare and superlative collector's items. The Choix des plus belles fleures et quelques branches des plus beaux fruits ( Selection of the Most Beautiful Blooms and Branches with the Finest Fruits ), issued in 36 parts between 1827 and 1833 is a late work of Redoute's, in which he published 144 hand-colored stipple engravings of his best representations of flora in revised form along with a few novelty items. It conveys a glimpse of the long-vanished magnificence of the greenhouses and gardens in and around Paris which delighted the elite of France in the first part of the 19th century." --

The new herbal of 1543 = New Kreüterbuch by Leonhart Fuchs( Book )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in German and English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While a dependable scientific reference, The New Herbal won fame above all with the detail and quality of its illustrations. Alongside essays describing the plants' features, origins, and medicinal powers, Fuchs presented each plant with meticulous woodcut illustrations, refining the ability for swift species identification and setting new standards for accuracy and quality in botanical publications. From the age of great exploration, The New Herbal also documented plant types from the recently discovered New World, offering the first visual record of tobacco, maize, kidney bean, and cactus. This fresh TASCHEN reprint is based on Fuchs's personal, hand-colored copy, which has miraculously survived four-and-a-half centuries in pristine condition. Fascinating for historians of medicine and art, gardeners, and anyone interested in herbal medicine, the volume features over 500 splendid illustrations, excerpted facsimiles of Fuchs's original texts, and an essay exploring the history of healing herbs
