Carolus Clusius (1526–1609) was one of the most eminent botanists of the European Renaissance, and his influence on tulip breeding and the bulb industry can still be felt today. In Carolus Clusis in a New Context, a distinguished group of contributors probes his role in both the botanical renaissance and the genesis of natural history as a field of study. Written from the perspective of the new cultural history of science, these interdisciplinary essays will fascinate anyone interested in natural history, landscape architecture, and Renaissance culture.
