Title: Catalogus plantarum Horti Academici Lugduno-Batavi. Cui accedit index plantarum indigenarum, quae prope Lugdunum in Batavis nascuntur. Das ist: Verzeichnüß der jenigen Gewächsen, so sich im Universitäts-Garten zu Leyden in Holland befinden : Beyneben einem Register der einländischen Gewächsen, so nahe umb Leyden in Wiesen, Feldern und Wäldern wachsen. Eichstätt, Urban Schrötter, printed by Franz Strauss, [ca. 1690/95?]. 12mo. In Latin and German (facing pages). Contemporary tanned sheepskin, blind-tooled spine.
Description: , . . Bircher, Barock 1600-1720, B14340; KVK & WorldCat (3 copies); VD17, 23:691814K (1, the same, copy); cf. Pritzel 8519. Very rare first and only Schrötter edition, with the text in Latin and German on facing pages, of an alphabetical catalogue of about 1500 plants in the botanical garden of Leiden University, with an appendix listing about 300 plants native to Leiden, first prepared by Florens Schuyl and published in Latin by Johan Elzevier in 1668.Though clearly based on Vorstius’s catalogue, which the Elzeviers had published in 1636, Schuyl’s catalogue expands the list considerably, including for the first time South African plants. It also includes the date palm and some Far Eastern plants. Urban Schrötter, court gardener at the botanical garden of the Prince Bishops of Eichstätt, apparently saw this edition through the press. The present edition appears to be the only work listing Schrötter as publisher, so he may have been more editor than publisher in the normal sense.With an erroneous manuscript attribution to Gottschalk on the title-page and date 1697. In very good condition. The binding is somewhat worn but still good. Very rare Latin and German edition of Schuyl's catalogue of plants at the Leiden University botanical garden.
