Short Description

This Spanish translation of the famous De Historia stirpium, a cornerstone of botany, is presented with 520 of the finest botanical woodcuts ever created, but the religious conflict of the 16th century complicated its publication.

Historia de Yervas, y Plantas, con los Nombres Griegos, Latinos y Españoles

The volume consists of 520 illustrations of mainly Old World plants, with a few from the Americas. They are the most beautiful and exact botanical woodcuts of 16th century Europe and are based on those created by Albrecht Meyer for the famous work by Leonhart Fuchs (1501–66), De historia stirpium (1542). The translator Juan de Jarava offers a brief caption in Spanish for each illustration. Due to Fuchs being a Protestant, the Spanish Inquisition forbid his name from appearing in Jarava’s translation. This can be confirmed by consulting the specimen housed in the Biblioteca Histórico-Médica de la Universitat de València.
