The Green Florilegium, Hardback Book

The Green Florilegium Hardback



Very little is known about The Green Florilegium. Neither signed nor dated, it is generally attributed to the German painter Hans Simon Holtzbecker and originates from the library at Gottorp Castle in Schleswig, on the border of Germany and Denmark.

The album now resides at the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen.

Recently the book was painstakingly restored, allowing the delicate illustrations to come to new life in their original colors.

This beautiful and affordable volume reproduces the original work of 400 botanical illustrations in its entirety.

It also includes an introductory essay and captions with basic information on each flower.

This lovely book is a must-have for lovers of botanical illustration and a sublime example of the art of conservation.
