from the famous work of botany of 1597 "The Herball or general historie of plants" by botanist John Gerard (1545-1611/12)
One can clearly see the influence of Matthioli as is also the case in many works of botany published after the important "Discorsi" of the famous Italian botanist.
The fained figure of ginger
The work is famous for its accurate descriptions of the species and for the popular culture information contained in the prose.
The first edition is of 1597, which was followed by a larger one in 1633 by Thomas Johnson who drew a lot of information from botanists Fuchs, Gesner, and Matthioli.
