Jacob Bobart the Elder (1599-1679/80), German botanist. Bobart was the first head gardener of what is now the Oxford Botanic Garden, Oxford, UK. This was founded in 1621 as a physic garden (herb garden). His death date and age are given here as 4 February 1679 at the age of 80, though some sources give 1680 as his death year. This artwork dates from 1800, and includes a tribute at bottom.
