Hortus Eystettensis - Deluxe Edition - Antique Originals

Showing 1–16 of 126 results

Published in 1613 by Nuremberg apothecary Basilius Besler, the monumental florilegium Hortus Eystettensis artistically records the flowering contents of the Garden of Eichstätt. Cultivated by Prince-Bishop Johann Konrad von Gemmingen at his Bavarian residence, this garden boasted local and exotic flora from all over the known world. Besler’s folio constitutes 367 exquisitely engraved and lavishly colored plates that capture over 1,000 plant varietals cultivated in the garden. Rendered on large sheets of 22 ½ x 18 inch paper, Besler’s engravings emphasize the ornate qualities of the plants as he traces their progression throughout the seasonal calendar. The Deluxe edition of Besler’s Hortus Eystettensis can be distinguished from the first edition through the absence of text on the verso, and the presence of a watermark in some, though not all, of the prints.
