About this book

Language: Multilingual in English, German, Italian, and Latin

The first facsimile edition of thisclassic, originally published in 1613, consists of 3 volumes in the format of 43.5 × 52 cm containing the facsimile of the original work by Besler, and a commentary volume in Italian, English, and German, by A. Menghini, D. Contin, K. Littger, W. Dressendorfer, and W. D. Muller Jahnke.

Shows 1084 plants on 367 full colour plates, all supposed to be present in the bishop's residence garden at Willibaldsburg. There were not only German plants included, but also quite a number from south and southeastern European areas as well as a few from Africa and America. The plants have been painted in full size, if the book format allowed. The arrangement is by seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter).

The commentary (29 × 38cm) shows all coloured plates in a smaller size with extensive scientific analyses of scientific, artistic, biographic and socio-cultural aspects of the work.
