Hortus Eystettensis (page 1/2)

details...

Images from Hortus Eystettensis, or the Florilegium (Plants of the Four Seasons) by Basilius Besler. I have a fac-simile, not the original book. It is a very large physical obejct, heavy to lift, and the plates were hand-coloured. This book changed the study of botany.
