Hesperides Sive de Malorum Aureorum Cultura et Usu Libri Quatuor, published 1696,


Abraham Munting (1626-1683) was professor of botany at the University of Groningen for 24 years. Munting directed the botanical garden founded by his father Henricus Munting, which was known as the 'Paradise of Groningen' and became one of the most extensive gardens of the period. His numerous botanical friends had sent the seeds of many of these plants to him from the Dutch East and West Indies, Africa and the Americas. It was in this beautiful garden that his daughter Hester died eating the deadly nightshade.
