A fine copy of the German-text issue of Matthaeus Merian's expanded edition of his father-in-law's 1612 Florilegium novum. "Florilegium renovatum is a much richer work than the earlier Florilegium novum, many illustrations from other sources having been added to de Bry's seventy plates. The allegorical title-page and the first thirty-two plates—illustrating parterres, urns of flowers and gardening tools, as well as plants—were drawn from De florum cultura by the Jesuit Giovanni Battista Ferrari, which was published in Rome in 1633. Merian reproduced Ferrari's plates, reversing them in the printing process, and sometimes adding butterflies or other features or combining figures from more than one illustration" (An Oak Spring Flora).

Among the entirely new plates contributed by Merian are the six full-sheet illustrations of exotic plants: plates 85 (Lilium liliorum), 86 (Lilium wran. multifolium), 113 (Stramonia Ægyptiaca), 116 (Ficus Indica minima), 123 (Narcissus de Alepo & Hyacinthus Comosus ramosus), and 142 (Hyiucca sive Yuca Canadana). The final, unnumbered plate has an integral date of 1647 and depicts a rose that bloomed in Prague.

Although Nissen calls for 177 plates, copies with the full complement of engravings—as in the Allen copy—are very rare, with most copies lacking at least one plate among 50A, 142 (evidently issued in 1644), and the terminal rose of Prague.
