Some illustrations from the Hortus Sanitatis or Gart der Gesundheit published by Peter Schoeffer at Mainz in 1485. Some woodcuts are from Hortus Sanitatis printed at Lubeck by Steffen Arndes in 1492. Others are from the Herbarius published by Schoeffer in 1484. Still others come from Crescentius' In Commodu Ruralium by Peter Drach in Speyer between 1490-1495.
