Basilus Besler Botanicals Collection

Basilius Besler,(1561-1629) was born in Nuremberg

He was best known for his monumental Hortus Eystettensis (Garden in Eichstätt), published in Nuremberg in 1613,  

Besler was commissioned by the Prince Bishop of Eichstätt to document the plants growing in his garden  which at that time, was the only notable European botanical garden outside of Italy. This task took sixteen years to complete. The publication of Hortus Eystettensis changed botanical art overnight. 

These are true collector's prints from one of the very best botanical artists of this period.
