These exquisite watercolors epitomize the Renaissance interest in and exploration of the natural world. Commissioned from an unknown artist by the Dutch pharmacist Theodorus Clutius as research material for doctors and herbalists, and later used by artists, the illustrations range from the rose and columbine to the sweet pea and cherry, from wild waterlilies to sage, thyme, rosemary, and exotic spices. 149 illustrations, 142 in color.
