Comprising more than 500 years of printed botanical illustrations, this stunning compendium of images
begins with medieval illuminated manuscripts and woodcuts from the early days of printing.
In addition to images from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, the collection features highlights
from such seventeenth-century classics as Gerard's Herbal, Besler's Hortus Eystettensis, and
Crispin van de Pass' Hortus Floridus. Latter-day selections include illustrations from major nineteenth-century
works including the great flower prints of Pierre-Joseph Redoute and hand-colored lithographs
by many other artists of the period as well as the imaginative twentieth-century floral work
in the Art Nouveau style of M. P. Verneuil, E. A. Seguy, and others.

Students of graphic art and illustration as well as graphic designers, advertising professionals,
and horticulturalists will prize this treasury of material from many rare historic sources.
