Hortus Cliffortianus

Hortus Cliffortianus

In some cases, a wealthy patron could fund the project outright. George Clifford, the director of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), supported Linnaeus early in his career, and it was during his brief time at Clifford's garden at Hartekamp that Linnaeus gained his international reputation. Clifford financed the Hortus Cliffortianus (1738), which celebrated Hartekamp; the bust in the upper left of the frontispiece is believed to be a portrait of Linnaeus's patron.
