Overview

The Book of Botanical Prints: The Complete Plates by Werner Dressendorfer, Basilius Besler, Klaus Walter Littger

In 1613 the Nuremberg apothecary Basilius Besler (1561–1629) published the Hortus Eystettensis, or “the thorough and careful identification and lively illustration of all its plants, flowers, trees …” Even today, it is a book that is still widely acknowledged as one of the great treasures of botanical literature. The garden at Eichstätt was founded by the Prince Bishop Johann Konrad von Gemmingen (1593/95–1612), who had the 14th-century castle of Willibaldsburg converted into a prestigious Renaissance palace. In eight separate garden areas surrounding the palace on various levels, he created the Hortus Eystettensis. At the time, it was admired for its remarkable variety of rare plants, such as tulips, hyacinths and crown imperials. In this respect, the garden catered to the Prince Bishop’s scientific and botanical interests, while at the same time providing him with the prestigious status symbol he desired.

The book presents almost 1100 plant types in a total of 367 copperplate engravings. Their order of presentation is based on the approximate blossoming period of the plants they show. In this respect, it does not adhere primarily to botanical principles of order, but reflects instead the practical considerations of the gardening year. The Hortus Eystettensis was thus a mirror of the bishop’s celebrated garden at Eichstätt. With a little imagination, we can step into the garden as we contemplate the engravings.
