this collection is based on the art from "the work (in besler florilegium"
​originally published in 1613

bontanist, basilius besler of nuremberg recorded, season by season, every variety of plant in the garden he helped create for konrad, bishop- prince of eichstatt, germany

hundreds of species were imported from the "new world"

besler assembled a team of artists and typographers and created this incredible catalog

the initial printing produced 300 copies of which fewer than ten are known to exist today
