About this Item: Apud Balthazarem Arnolletum, Lugduni [Lyon], 1549. Second Lyon Edition. 165 x 108 mm. (6 1/2 x 4 1/4"). 16 p.l. (the last blank), 852 pp., [6] leaves. Second Lyon Edition. Excellent 17th century calf, double gilt fillet border on covers, raised bands (expertly rebacked, preserving most of the original attractively gilt backstrip). Woodcut printer's device, portrait, and IN EXCESS OF 500 WOODCUT BOTANICAL ILLUSTRATIONS, ALL COLORED BY A CONTEMPORARY HAND. Endpapers with bookplates of A. D. Stodeur, M.D., and the Horticultural Society of New York (Bequest of Kenneth Mackenzie, 1934); title page with mostly removed ink inscription in a contemporary hand; margin of bb7 with remnants of 17th or 18th century ink signature; e4 with light embossed stamp of the Horticultural Society. Nissen BBI 557; Hunt 61; Adams F-1102; Mortimer 240. Leather a little crackled, neat repairs to title page and margins of two other leaves (no loss), isolated rust spots or light foxing, occasional faint offsetting from colors, but A REMARKABLY FINE COPY, unusually clean and fresh internally (for any 16th century book and particularly for an herbal), and in a solid binding with no significant wear. This is an historically significant early octavo edition of Fuchs' celebrated herbal, published seven years after the work first appeared, offered here with unusually careful contemporary hand coloring and in almost amazing condition. Professor of medicine at Tübingen, Fuchs (1501-66), sets out in this work to improve the knowledge of materia medica by showing the largest possible number of plants useful as drugs and herbs. Specifically, he describes 400 German and 100 foreign plants and illustrates them with more than 500 woodcuts. Our scholarly author draws heavily on classical learning in his text, but he also uses his knowledge of the northwestern European species and even American plants like maize (the fuchsia, when it was brought from America, was named after him). He expresses a keen appreciation for the beauties of nature, and he is enough of a true botanist to describe the characteristics of plants, their habits, habitats, and forms. It is this work that makes Fuchs one of the founders of botany (along with Bock and Brunfels), a science that had virtually stood still since Dioscorides. The clearest aspect of modernity in the work is seen in the woodcuts, based on firsthand observation of the living plant and establishing a standard of plant illustration which has been followed down to the present. Ours is the scarce second Lyon edition, distinctive as the first printing of a smaller version of the woodcuts used in the first edition, issued in 1542 in Basel. The early folio editions are among the great illustrated books of the period, and even the small woodcuts here are detailed and delicate. In the present copy, the coloring has been done with deftness and care, and the results are gratifyingly attractive. The small editions of these works would have been used in the field, the kitchen, and the apothecary shop, where they would have encountered hazards from dirt, damp, spills, and burns. To find a copy like the present one, with no such signs of use, is extremely fortunate.

About this Item: Michael Isingrin, Basel, 1542. First edition. First edition. Woodcut portraits of Fuchs, Albrecht Meyer, Heinrich Füllmaurer, and Veit Rudolf Speckle; and 512 woodcuts of plants after drawings from nature by Meyer, transferred to woodblocks by Füllmaurer, and cut into the block by Speckle. [xxviii], 896 pp. Folio (14-1/2 x 19-1/16 inches ; 362 x 320 mm.). A Milestone of Botanical Science. One of the most justly celebrated and highly prized of the early herbals. Leonhart Fuchs was an eminent practicing physician and Professor of Medicine at the Protestant University of Tübingen. Fuchs aimed his work at an audience of professionals in order to provide them with accurate descriptions of plants, including many recently imported into Europe from America, Africa, and Asia. Today, Fuchs' work is prized not only for its scholarly value, but also for the surpassing beauty of its illustrations. The methodical layout, the organization of the subject matter, the spacious design, and the number, size, and beauty of the illustrations have caused the herbal to appeal to botanists and bibliophiles alike ? Scholars today consider the herbal to be one of the significant landmarks of pre-Linnean literature (Grolier 100). Fuchs also included portraits of the artists he collaborated with in creating the book-Albrecht Meyer, who drew the plants from life; Heinrich Füllmaurer, who transferred the line drawings to woodblocks; and Vitus Rudolph Speckle, who cut the blocks and printed the woodcut illustrations-are portrayed at the end of the volume.

About this Item: Basileae [Basel], Officina Isingrimiana [Isengrim]., 1542. Fol. 8 n.n. Bll., 896 S. OPgm. der Zeit, auf fünf Bünden. Vgl. VD 16 F 3242. S.441f. nach einem Scan in nahezu einer Qualität eines Faksimiles beigefügt. Die Holzschnitte sind tlw. altkoloriert, abhängig vom Grünpigment tlw. gebräunt. - Exlibris a. V. (2), Gbrsp., fachmännisch restauriert, R. m. Pergmant unterlegt: hds. Titel a. R., S. 415-6 m. Japanpapier stabilisiert u. hinterlegt, tlw. durchschlagende Kolorierung. - Fuchs, (1501 - 1566), sowie Otto Brunfels und Hieronymus Bock gehören zu den ersten der sogenannten Deutschen Väter der Pflanzenkunde. Er studierte nach dem Besuch der Schule bzw. der Artistenfakultät in Heilbronn und Erfurt seit 1519 an der Univ. Ingolstadt. 1524 zum Dr. med. promoviert, war er anschließend -- wahrscheinlich als praktischer Arzt -- in München tätig, um dann 1526 eine Professur für Medizin in Ingolstadt zu übernehmen. Als Lutheraner an dieser rein kath. Hochschule indes manchen Widrigkeiten ausgesetzt, trat er zwei Jahre später die Stelle eines Leibarztes bei dem Markgrafen Georg von Brandenburg in Ansbach an, zumal dort eine protestantische Univ. errichtet werden sollte; da sich dieses Vorhaben jedoch zerschlug, kehrte er 1532 nach Ingolstadt zurück. Aus konfessionellen Gründen alsbald genötigt, wiederum in Ansbach Zuflucht zu suchen, folgte er 1535 einem Ruf an die Univ. Tübingen, wo er trotz anderweitiger ehrenvoller Angebote bis zu seinem Lebensende als angesehener und einflußreicher Prof. der Medizin wirkte. Fuchs, der zu den bedeutendsten deutschen Humanistenärzten zählt und sich auch als Hochschullehrer um eine zeitgemäße Reform der Heilkunde verdient gemacht hat, hinterließ ein umfängliches fachliterarisches Werk, das freilich zum allergrößten Teil relativ bald in Vergessenheit geriet und im Rückblick nur begrenzt Anspruch auf Originalität erheben kann. So trat er zum einen als Herausgeber, Übersetzer und Kommentator namentlich des Hippokrates und des Galen, zum anderen als Verfasser zahlreicher Schriften (insbesondere verschiedener medizinischer Lehrbücher) hervor, die ihn nicht zuletzt als unerbittlichen Gegner des Arabismus und als äußerst streitbaren Autor ausweisen, der sein -- allein am Vorbild der alten Griechen orientiertes -- Ideal einer in ihrer ursprünglich-reinen Form restituierten Medizin ebenso polemisch wie dogmatisch verteidigte. Am bekanntesten geworden ist F. schließlich durch sein vor allem in verkleinerten Bilderausgaben weit verbreitetes, auch mehrfach übersetztes und besonders in Frankreich häufig publiziertes Kräuterbuch: die 1542 zu Basel erschienenen De historia stirpium commentarii insignes, denen ebendort 1543 eine deutsche Fassung unter dem Titel New Kreüterbuch folgte; ein zweiter und ein dritter Teil -- als Manuskript der geplanten dreibändigen Ausgabe heute in der Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek in Wien aufbewahrt -- blieben hingegen ungedruckt. Der epochemachende Rang dieses Werkes ist allerdings in erster Linie den künstlerisch vollendeten Abbildungen zu verdanken, die unter seiner Anleitung durch Heinrich Füllmaurer und Albrecht Meyer sowie den Formschneider Veit Rudolf Speckle angefertigt wurden und die in jeweils ganzseitigen Holzschnitten die Pflanzen nicht nur naturgetreu, sondern in ihrer Idealgestalt bzw. gleichsam in ihrer Lebensgeschichte wiedergeben. Obschon sich der gelehrte, systematisch angelegte Text im wesentlichen auf die überlieferten, wiewohl durch eigene Beobachtungen angereicherten Angaben der antiken Autoren stützt, finden sich unter den rund 500 Pflanzenbeschreibungen und -bildern doch auch solche von mehr als 100 neuen, d.h. in Deutschland erstmals dargestellten Gewächsen: etwa dem als Arzneipflanze später so bedeutsamen Fingerhut (Digitalis) oder dem bis dahin in Europa unbekannten, aus Amerika eingeführten Mais ("Türckisch korn"). Hauptsächlich aufgrund der -- nach vorherrschender Ansicht unübertroffenen, zudem oft kopierten und dementsprechend wirkmächtigen -- Illustrationen markiert Fuchs' Kräuterbuch somit den Höhepunkt in.
