Kräuter und Blumen

Botanische Bücher bis 1850 im Germanischen Nationalmuseum

The catalogue is dedicated to an important part – both in quantity and in quality – of the museum library’s collection: the botanical-pharmaceutical books. A foray into the history of botanical literature and illustration portrays the exploration of the flora, from its beginnings in antiquity until the 19th century and its reflections in often gloriously illustrated books. The catalogue of around 330 botanical books from five centuries offers information on distinctive technical details on each book, as well as short texts on content, authors and illustrations. Several cross-reverences between historical forays and individual descriptions illustrate the comprehensiveness of the collection. An author index and an index of persons as well as an extensive bibliography offer further guidance. The book provides an insight into current botanical views: the perspectives of science, especially pharmaceutics, agriculture – and garden lovers.
