historic german garden
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
