After becoming a Doctor of Medicine in 1554, he became the town physician in Frankfurt am Main. His true interest though was herbs and the study of botany. His first important work on herbs, the Kräuterbuch, was published in 1557, with a large part dealing with distillation. He married Magdalena Egenolff, the daughter of Christian Egenolff, his Frankfurt publisher and a printer who specialized in herbals. The work that made his name famous is this popular herbal, the Kräuterbuch. Lonicer provides us with one of the early descriptions of local flora as well as being one of the first to differentiate deciduous trees from conifers. shelved case 4.
