About this book

Carolus Clusius (1526- 1609) was one of the most eminent botanists of the European Renaissance, and his influence on tulip breeding and the bulb industry can still be felt today. In "Carolus Clusis in a New Context," a distinguished group of contributors probes his role in both the botanical renaissance and the genesis of natural history as a field of study. Written from the perspective of the new cultural history of science, these interdisciplinary essays will fascinate anyone interested in natural history, landscape architecture, and Renaissance culture.
