About

John Parkinson was the last of the great English herbalists and one of the first of the great English botanists. Here the pair of prints show mosses and lichen and the other of ferns. From: Paradisi in sole Paradisus Terrestris: or a garden of all sorts of pleasant flowers which our English Ayre will permit to be noursed vp. With a kitchen garden of all manner of Herbes, rootes, and fruits, for meat or sauce vied with vs, and an orchard of all sort of fruit bearing trees and shrubbes fit for our land. together with the right ordering, planting & preserving of them and their uses and virtues collected by Iohn Parkinson apothecary of London. London: printed by Hvmfrey Lownes and Robert Yovng at the signe of the starre on bread-street hill. Reference: John Parkinson (1567, buried 6 August 1650) was the last of the great English herbalists and one of the first of the great English botanists. He was apothecary to James I and a founding member of the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries in December 1617 and was later Royal Botanist to Charles I. He is known for two monumental works, Paradisi in Sole Paradisus Terrestris (Park-in-Sun's Terrestrial Paradise, 1629), which generally describes the proper cultivation of plants; and Theatrum Botanicum (The Botanical Theatre or Theatre of Plants, 1640), the most complete and beautifully-presented English treatise on plants of its time. One of the most eminent gardeners of his day, he kept a botanical garden at Long ACRE in Covent Garden, today close to Trafalgar Square, and maintained close relations with other important English and continental botanists, herbalists and plantsmen.
