First edition of one of the most attractive Dutch florilegia of the seventeenth century. "The author, Abraham Munting, was an eminent professor of botany and chemistry at the University of Groningen. … and founded one of the most extensive botanical gardens of the period, known as the `Paradise of Groningen`, which he directed from 1658 up until his death in 1683. Munting wrote a number of works on medical-botanical topics, but his posthumously published opus magnum, the Naauwkeurige, enjoyed particular success, at least in part due to the novelty of the plates, which in a radical departure from the iconography of the traditional florilegium, presented its plant species against a charming series of landscape backgrounds. … The illustrations are remarkable for their elegance and originality. … Each plate shows a different plant in flower, including many exotic species from America and other distant lands. The plant dominates the foreground, filling the entire page, often with a detail of the fruit or flower presented on a smaller scale. In some cases the plants are presented à trompe l'oeil, while in others they have been arranged in decorated urns. Sometimes gardening tools are depicted as well. The name of each plant appears written on an elegantly fluttering ribbon or cartouche, or on a crumbling marble plaque. … Only one plate (201) is signed; it bears the name of Joseph Mulder (1659-1710), an engraver who had studied with Hendrick Bogaert and who was working in Amsterdam as an illustrator of historical and geographic works. Mulder also depicted various unusual plants and insects from Surinam for Maria Sibylla Merian." (An Oak Spring flora).
