Fuchs' Hot Peppers, 1542
One of the delightful, detailed illustrations from the masterwork De Historium Stirpium published in 1542 by Leonhart Fuchs (1501-1566), considered one of the fathers of botany. Fuchs, a German doctor and university professor, endeavored in this book to catalogue all known plants and their medicinal uses, but it is most important for its beautiful and accurate woodcut illustrations by the most talented German artists of his time. His name is immortalized as “Fuchsia” for both the color and the plant.
