This is a leaf from "Ortus Sanitatis..." printed in 1497 by Johann Prüss.
Pruss published three reprints of Meydenbach's Ortus Sanitatis between 1497 and 1499. These became the basis for future versions of the book in Latin, German, and French, rather than the original Meydenbach. Three new woodcuts were substituted in the Pruss edition. They came from "Cirurgia" and "Anatomia" by Hieronymus Brunschwig.
This is leaf number 12 from from the modern work 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.
