328 pp. A beautifully illustrated catalogue of the fine collection of antiquarian botany books and herbals in the collections of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, which despite its name is actually located in Nuremberg, northern Bavaria. The oldest item is a handwritten list of German and Latin plant names dated c. 1355-57; the catalogue ends with Josef Weisz's Blumen der Alpen, a somewhat inconsequential work. In between is presented the cream of continental publishing, including Hortus sanitatis (1492), New (sic) KrŠuterbuch (1543) and Hortus Eystettensis (1613) which was of course published in Nuremberg as well as at EichstŠtt.
