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. Deutlich 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).
