Folio woodcut initially published in DE HISTORIA STIRPIUM COMMENTARII INSIGNES (1543) by LEONHARD FUCHS.

Here published in "Anleitung zu der Pflanzenkenntnis" by Salomon Schinz. First and only edition, documenting a remarkable survival. The 101 woodcuts are printed from the original blocks of Fuchs 'De Stirpium historia', 1542, the most celebrated herbal ever published. "The only apparent difference is the removal of the (printed) plant-names from the old plates and the printing of new ones at the bottom."

The woodcut has been hand coloured by during the winter of 1774 by young people of the Zürich Orphanage.

Salomon Schinz (1734 - 1784) swiss physician, smallpox vaccine pioneer, Zürich´s Medical Institute founder and Botanical Garden main promoter, naturalist and botanist, selected and printed out 101 from the 512 original Leonhart Fuchs´s "De Historia Stirpium" (Basel, 1542) wood blocks; which back then were to be found in the possession of the Gessner family whose heiress: Magdalena, he also had married. "De Historia Stirpium" is seen as one the most beautiful herbal ever published and definitely as the crown jewel of the German Renaissance. issued in 1542 in Basel.

38 x 23 cm;

Very good condition.

    Je pensais recevoir 2 gravures identiques étant donné le titre mais je n'en ai eu qu'une seule. Le titre ne correspond apparemment pas à la description.
    Sinon j'en suis content

    Response by seller
    I am so sorry and believe there has been a misunderstanding. I wrote on September 2nd to check that you had received the Laurus and have not heard back. As such I assumed that it arrived safely.

    If the Laurus has not arrived, I will of course take this up with the transport company and issue a full refund or replacement. I will contact you via message to clarify this.

    Again I am sincerely sorry if there has been a misunderstanding. Our wish is that all our customers are always happy with their purchases.
