A rare work on the exotic plants to be found in the garden (situated just outside the Grimmischen Gate in Leipzig) of the merchant and city councillor, Caspar Bose. The head gardener appears to have been Peine, and when the Aloe flowered in August 1700 the plate was produced to commemorate the event: the stance of the figure in the foreground suggests that it is Peine presenting the plant to presumably Caspar Bose. The plate has a small blind-stamp with monogram and crown in the lower right blank corner. "Zwei Brüder Bose legten sich zu Ende des XVII. Jahrhunderts Gärten an von allbewunderter Schönheit. Der des älteren, Caspar Bose …, lag am Grimmaischen Tor, er erregte bis nach Italien Aufmerksamkeit, man erzählt, daß der Papst sich nach seinen Einrichtungen erkundigen ließ. Das Interessanteste ist die Anlage des vertieften Orangerieparterres, das in einem sehr großen Halbkreis radiale Beete eingeordnet hatte, in deren Mitte die Orangenbäume aufgestellt wurden. Das Terrain, das in der Mittelachse zur Villa eine schöne Orangerie abschließt, steigt amphitheatralisch an, Brunnen in den Mauern und Statuen beleben den Garten. Auf der Höhe sind Baum- und Blumengärten, Grotten und Springbrunnen angebracht. Deutlch sehen wir hier trotz aller Pracht des Einzelschmuckes die Renaissanceentwicklung des Bürgergartens festgehalten, vor allem in der unmittelbaren Verbindung von Lust- und Nutzgarten. Auch die Anlage des Orangerieparterres wird sich wohl aus der Anordnung der botanischen Gärten herleiten, die nach dem Vorbild von Padua nich selten eine solche Trapezanordnung der Beete zeigten. Sein Schöpfer ist der Architekt und Kupferstecher David Schatz, … (Gothein, vol. 2, p. 257 ff., with an engraving similar, but not identical to the one in this offered copy).

The plates are facsimiles of those printed in 1739 for Sarah Bridgeman, the widow of Charles Bridgeman. After her death the remaining stock of engraved plates was bought up by a group of four print sellers who added the title-page (in English and French with captions to the plates) dated 1746: Stowe Gardens in Buckinghamshire, belonging to the right honourable the Lord Viscount Cobham; laid out by Mr Bridgman [sic.], principal gardener to their Majesties King George I and II. Delineated in a large plan, and fifteen perspective views. Drawn on the spot by Mons. Rigaud, and engraved by him and Mons. Bernard Baron. … This facsimile edition has a new title-page, colofon, list of subscribers, an account of the original publication and descriptive notes to each of the plates by George B. Clarke [pp. 6 with plan].
“… The most magnificent of these private estates was Stowe, seat of Richard Temple, 1st Viscount Cobham, and the most celebrated English landscape of the day. … Numerous poems and guidebooks attest to Stowe’s glories, and in 1733-4 Bridgeman commissioned Rigaud and Baron to prepare their sumptuous set of views of Stowe which (with a plan) were published by Sarah Bridgeman, the year after her husband’s death” (Jellicoe).
