The volume consists of an atlas of 520 illustrations of mainly Old World plants, with a few American ones.

They are the most beautiful and exact xylographs of the whole botanic theme printed in XVI century Europe, since they are the famous ones of the work of Leonhart Fuchs, De historia stirpium (1542), on each of which Jarava offers a brief comment in Spanish.

Due to Fuchs being a protestant notary, the Spanish Inquisition forbid his name to appear on Jarava’s volume, which may be checked on the copy reproduced which is kept in the Biblioteca Histórico-Médica de la Universitat de València.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
