De Historia Stirpium Commentarii Insignes, Basel.1542.
Leonhart Fuchs was a German physician and naturalist who is sometimes credited as being a founder of botany. In this book, Fuchs quotes historic information from before Medieval times. Before this, the last real recorded book/record of this caliper was 1500 years before, with Galen and Theophrastus.Much of the information gathered in the book Fuchs pulled from De Materia Medica, one of the first ‘herbals’ written of course by Dioscoriodes. De Historia Stirpium Commentarii Insignes was a publication that was among the first to draw ‘actual’ plants and to focus on real things. The main purpose Fuchs was trying to achieve was to identify, draw, and describe plants that had previously been mentioned by ancient authors (including Galen, Hippocrates, Pliny, and of course Dioscorides. He was a great contributor to botany because he included plants (there are about 500, both wild and domestic) that were not known to have any medical importance.

The springs are a crystal flood, almost as transparent as the air we breathe, so extremely clear as to be absolutely diaphanous or transparent as the ether, an enchanting and amazing crystal fountain, the blue ether of another world.
