Leaf with handcolored woodcuts (recto and verso of one leaf) with early French manuscript notes detailing the properties of the herb.
From De Historia Stirpium Commentarii Insignes, Lvgdvni: Apud Balthazarem Arnolletum, 1549
Leaf size: 15 x 10.5 cm
Historically significant early octavo leaf with two woodcuts from Fuchs' celebrated herbal, published seven years after the work first appeared, offered here with unusually careful hand coloring and in fine early additional French manuscript notes.
The woodcuts have a clear aspect of modernity based on firsthand observation of the living plant and establish a standard of plant illustration which has been followed down to the present. The leaf on offer is from the scarce second Lyon edition, distinctive as the first printing of a smaller version of the woodcuts used in the first edition, issued in 1542 in Basel. The small editions of these works would have been used in the field, the kitchen, and the apothecary shop.
