A decorative and beautiful frontispiece page from the 'Winter' section one of the largest and most magnificent of the great flower books, depicting more than 1000 flowers from nearly 700 species.
Besler (1561-1629) was a Nuremberg apothecary and collector. Important influences were the botanical works of Joachim Camerarius the Younger, Charles de l"Ecluse, Caspar Bauhin, Castore Durante, Caspar Schwenckfeld, Jakob Theodor (Tabernaemontanus), and Matthias de l'Obel.

The "Hortus" was complete in Autumn 1613, and at least 300 copies were issued. Most of the original "plate" drawings are still extant (having been preserved by Christoph Jakob Trew), and are now in the University Library, Erlangen.
Engravers included Georg Gartner, Johann Leypolt, Levin van Hulsen and his son Friedrich, Peter Isselburg, Servatius Raeven and Heinrich Ulrich. The copper plates survived until 1817, when they were melted down by the Royal Mint in Munich.
This wonderful book was financed by Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, Prince Bishop of Eichstatt.
