Beseler Garden

This magnificent pictorial record of 667 species (amounting to upwards of a thousand flowers) growing in the garden of Prince Bishop of Eichstätt, Johann Konrad von Gemmingen (1561-1612), was the work of a Nuremberg apothecary Basil Besler (1561-1629). The wealthy Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, Prince Bishop from 1595 to his death in 1612, created an extensive garden, built up on eight different terraces around his palace on the Willibaldsburg, overlooking the Bavarian city of Eichstätt.
