Book Description Christie's, London, auction catalogue for Lot 151the sale held on 20 May, 1992, 1992. Laminated wrappers, 4to, 30 pp, colour plates. 1 lot. From the catalogue: "A Manuscript Flower Book, containing 473 drawings of ornamental plants, arranged seasonally for the most part, watercolours and bodycolours on paper, on 194 leaves, [ Nuremberg, c. 1589]. One of the first pictorial records of flowers in a 16th-century garden and the precursor of the Hortus Eystettensis, 1613. It portrays 473 ornamental plants, many being recently introduced exotics from the New World, Asia Minor, and the Far East. Manuscripts of this kind are virtually unknown. This manuscript florilegium depicts plants in the garden of the Nuremberg botanist and physician Joachim Camerarius (1534-1598), and is important for its connection with the greatest German garden of its time, that of the Prince-Bishop, Johann Conrad von Germmingen, at Eichstätt, celebrated in the Hortus Eystettensis, 1613, published by Basil Besler. Many of the plants grown at Eichstätt came from Camerarius, the leading German botanist of his day, who had designed and supervised the original layout of the gardens. This manuscript, besides being a work of great beauty, represents a significant document in the development of horticulture in the latter 1500s. It is probably the only known surviving pictorial record of the contents of an important 16th-century flower garden, at the very time when flower cultivation and the growing of plants for pleasure was beginning to emerge as an art in its own right. Prior to this, gardens were mostly utilitarian, devoted to culinary and medicinal plants, and depictions of their contents in manuscripts and books were devoted to plants as materia medica or as symbols and emblems in religious art. The importation of exotic species, the product of rapid colonial expansion and increased trade in the 16th century, enlarged the horticultural repertoire and fed a growing fashion for beautiful and exotic plants, confirmed by the appearance of printed florilegia at the beginning of the 17th century, of which the Hornis Eystettensis is the outstanding example. Joachim Camerarius, born in Nuremberg in 1534, was raised in the house of his father's friend, the great reformer Philipp Melanchthon." Price noted in margin, otherwise near Fine.
