Abstract

Charles de l’Ecluse (Clusius), Rariorum aliquot Stirpium per Hispanias Obseruatarum Historia. Pr. Christopher Plantin, Antwerp, 1576. With numerous engravings by one of Plantin’s best artists, Pieter van der Borcht. The famous press founded by Plantin (c. 1520-1589) was to remain in business until 1867. Charles de l’Ecluse (1526-1609), professor at the University of Leiden, established Europe’s first botanical garden there (still in existence), and laid the foundations of the Dutch bulb industry. This book is one of the earliest treatises on the flora of Spain. Inside the front cover is ‘duplicato’, an old shelfmark C. 64, and 12/- in pencil. At the end is ‘Perlegi Tag ij 1580. mense Februario / Laus Deo.’ On the verso of the title page is ‘Will: Forsyth 1825’. From the Library of Christ College; given by Rev. R. R. Davies in 1852. Uncatalogued.
