This is a plate from the work Garten der Gesuntheit, a 1485 re-print of the original work. It illustrates the plant "Buglassa" (Bugloss or ox-tongue).
Garten der Gesuntheit was reprinted from Peter Schoffer's 1485 work a mere five months after its release. The images have been reduced in size to conserve space on the page, thus reducing the amount of paper required to print the work. Schonsperger printed a total of nine editions, with a tenth printed later by Hans Othmar in 1508.
This is leaf number 5 from the modern collection entitled: Herbals of five centuries; 50 original leaves from German, French, Dutch, English, Italian, and Swiss herbals; with an introduction ond bibliography by Claus Nissen. Zurich: L'Art Ancien, Olten, Weiss-Hesse [etc.], 1958.
