Basil Besler (1561 - 1628)

Besler was a Nuremburg apothecary in charge of Prince Bishop of Eicstatt’s elaborate gardens. Over a period of sixteen years Besler undertook his monumental florilegia, documenting more than one thousand flowers. Each plate is beautifully designed with the plants depicted whole and life size. The most delightfully drawn and visually impressive botanical illustrations of all time.
