* Basilius (or Basil) Besler is an apothecary, doctor, botanist and publisher German, born February 13, 1561 in Nuremberg and died March 13, 1629 in the same city.
Basil Besler runs the Zum Marienbild pharmacy in Nuremberg from 1589 to 1629, where he also creates a botanical garden and a cabinet of curiosities.
In 1597, the Prince-Bishop of Eichstätt, John Conrad of Gemmingen, asked Besler to create a botanical garden on a plot in Willibaldsburg.
Besler's one-hectare garden with eight terraces is quickly becoming famous.
Several botanists participate in the realization of this garden: Charles de l'Ecluse (1525-1609), who had already realized a garden in Vienna, Joachim Camerarius the Younger (1534-1598) and Ludwig Jungermann (1572-1653). He published the catalog of plants in his garden in Hortus Eystettensis (1613) in Eichstätt and Nuremberg, a book describing 1,084 plant species, with 367 engravings on copper for a total of 850 pages.
The writing of the botanical part is done by Ludwig Jungermann, while the engravings were executed by more than six different engravers, the most important being Wolfgang Kilian.
