This plate is taken from the work entitled "Garten der Gesuntheit" a reprint published in 1499 of the original 1485 edition. The illustration is labeled "Wilder Saffran" (wild saffron).
This is a later edition of Hans Schonsperger's re-print of the Schoeffer edition of 1485. The illustrations have been reduced in size to conserve space and thus reduce the amount of paper required to print the work. Schonsperger printed a total of nine editions with a tenth printed in 1508 by Hans Othmar.
This is leaf number 6 taken from the modern collection entitled: Herbals of five centuries; 50 original leaves from German, French, Dutch, English, Italian, and Swiss herbals; with an introduction and bibliography by Claus Nissen. Zurich: L'Art Ancien, Olten, Weiss-Hesse [etc.], 1958.
