Description :From his famous work 'Flora Japonica'. Von Siebold was born in Würtzburg, in Germany, and worked for the Dutch government as a doctor in Java. In Japan, where Von Siebold arrived in 1823 at the age of 27, he demonstrated his skills in medicine. His reputation allowed him to go beyond Deshima and to buy a house outside Nagasaki.
In 1835 the first installments of his "Flora Japonica" were finished. The "Flora Japonica" was written in collaboration with Joseph Gerhard Zuccarini and issued in 30 parts.
Only the first volume could be completed in 1841, and during Von Siebold's lifetime until 1844, only five installments of the second volume appeared. After Zuccarini's death in 1848, work on the Flora was virtually stopped, though on the basis of Zuccarini's and Siebold's manuscripts another five installments were edited by F.A.W.Miquel for publications in 1870.
