Why We Love This

Hand-colored copperplate engraving from Germany shows a frontal view of marjoram, a perennial herb with a distinctly sweet pine and citrus flavor. Although printed in 1719, the style and composition is reminiscent of the famous botanical prints of Basilius Besler from his masterwork Hortus Eysttensis, first published in 1613. The elaborate background reflects the emergence of European landscape painting and the importance of herbs in culinary culture, alchemy, and medicine at that time.
