Summary
"Leonard Fuchs, one of the German Fathers of Botany, was also well known as a physician and professor of medicine. Along with his professional work he found time to complete his botanical masterpiece De Historia Stirpium which was published by Michael Isingrinius in Basal in 1542. - Written in Latin, his herbal deals with some four hundred native German plants as well as one hundred foreign ones. There are over five hundred full-page woodcuts which testify to an excellent collaboration between the author and the artists who assisted him. They are of fine quality, many of exquisite beauty, and represent a high point in the art of botanical drawing. Fuchs acknowledges his debt to the artists in his preface and includes their portraits on the recto of the errata leaf. One artist, Heinrich Fullmaürer, appears to be drawing the plants from nature; the second, Albrecht Meyer, is copying the outline on wood; and the third, the engraver Veit Rudolf Speckle, is cutting the block. Some of the woodcuts are of special interest as being the earliest European drawings of American plants. Many were copied by later herbalists. There are woodcut initials throughout the text. The printer's device appears on the title page. The binding is contemporary vellum." -- [from 1973 Dysart Exhibition Catalogue]. --
