On-line catalogue of digitized books of the Archbishop chateau in Kroměříž

This is a comprehensive collection of books, mostly on Botanics, dating from the late Medieval period to the 18th century with some really stunning illustrations: http://digi.azz.cz/main.php?lng=2


Icones Plantarum Rariorum (1), by Nicolaus Joseph Jacquin (1727-1817).


Prodromos theatri botanici, by Casper Bauhin(1560–1624).


Le Jardinier Hollandois.../ Der Niederländische Gärtner...., by Jan van der Groen (ca 1635 - 1672).

This website also allows you to switch views between text only and image only folios, which does of course, make life a lot easier when you are doing a search.
