"Kreutter Buch" or "Kreutterbuch" was written by Hieronymus Bock and published in 1539. It is one of the earliest and most significant works on herbal medicine and botany in the German language. The full title translates to "Herbal Book, in which the Distinction of Names and Effects of Herbs, Shrubs, Hedges, and Trees, along with Their Fruits Growing in German Lands, and Their True and Well-Founded Use in Medicine, is Diligently Explained, Useful, and Comforting, Especially for Common Simple People." This work played a crucial role in advancing the knowledge of medicinal plants and their applications during the Renaissance period.

In the "Kreutter Buch," Hieronymus Bock meticulously cataloged and described various plants, specifying their names, characteristics, and medicinal properties. The book was richly illustrated with detailed woodcuts of the plants, making it one of the earliest European botanical texts to include visual representations of plants. Bock's work was based on his extensive personal observations and experiences with plants, setting a standard for the accurate description and categorization of herbs and their uses.

This seminal work not only contributed to the field of herbal medicine but also helped lay the foundation for the systematic study of botany. It became a valuable reference for herbalists, physicians, and botanists of its time and is considered a significant contribution to the history of European botany and pharmacology.
