Sedicesimo 49: Clemente de'Vallisneria
(1000 items available)
Sedicesimo 49 features the work of Clemente de'Vallisneria, an enigmatic figure amidst the rigourous world of natural sciences. The 15 flowers presented represent a very small part of the Herbarium Microscopicum by de’Vallisneria. A work beyond compare in the world of botany: in terms of size, in terms of the type of flowers featured and in terms of the mystery that surrounds the author of this work, about whom very little is known, or as he would wish, almost nothing.
