Johann Bauhin (1541-1613), Swiss botanist. Bauhin, a contemporary of the Swiss naturalist Conrad Gessner (1516-1565), became court physician to the German Duke Frederick I of Wurttemberg. He spent much of his time studying botany. His major work was 'Historia plantarum universalis', published posthumously in 1650 and 1651. This 1591 portrait is from his work 'De plantis absynthii nomen habentibus' (1593).
