En Tibi herbarium

En Tibi herbarium

En Tibi Perpetuis Ridentum Floribus Hortum… “Here for you a smiling garden with everlasting flowers", is the Latin inscription on this leather-bound herbarium from Italy. The ‘En Tibi herbarium’ contains 477 specimens, probably collected around Bologna. The watermark of the paper dates from 1550-1555 and the paper was made in Florence or Bologna. This makes this herbarium one of the oldest collection of dried plants compiled from a scientific perspective.
