Köhler’s Medicinal Plants / Köhler’s Medizinal-Pflanzen – vol. 1

Köhler’s Medicinal Plants (Köhler’s Medizinal-Pflanzen ) vol. 1 is one of the most sought-after compendiums I have ever worked with. I cannot explain whether it is due to the illustrations or the selection of plants, because I have come across many other botanical publications that have both equally beautiful illustrations and an equally large and wide selection of plants as Köhler’s Medicinal Plants. But having said that, I will not deny at all that it has a large selection of plants, and that the illustrations are unbelievably beautiful. I just can’t help wondering if it’s just a matter of popularity and availability that has given Köhler’s Medicinal Plants an ultimate first place.

Köhlers Medicinal Plants is a German herbal written principally from 1887, made by Hermann Adolph Köhler, and contains a fascinating collection of 88 medicinal plant illustrations. The illustrations are incredibly detailed and even provide a glimpse into the history of traditional medicines. All of the illustrations were originally hand drawn and show each plant’s unique features and characteristics, making this an invaluable resource. The level of detail found in these illustrations is truly stunning and it’s not just academics who can appreciate Köhlers Medicinal Plants either – anyone with an interest in nature, or just wanting to enjoy something beautiful, will surely find this collection of botanical illustrations interesting.
