The volume consists of an atlas of 520 illustrations of mainly Old World plants, with a few American ones. They are the most beautiful and exact xylographs of the whole botanic theme printed in XVI century Europe, since they are the famous ones of the work of Leonhart Fuchs, De historia stirpium (1542), on each of which Jarava offers a brief comment in Spanish. Due to Fuchs being a protestant notary, the Spanish Inquisition forbid his name to appear on Jarava’s volume, which may be checked on the copy reproduced which is kept in the Biblioteca Histórico-Médica de la Universitat de València.
