Catalogue Note

“THE MOST ELABORATE ILLUSTRATED WORK BY LINNAEUS” (Cleveland Herbal). An important botanical work, being the catalogue of the magnificent garden at Hartekamp of the Anglo-Dutch banker George Clifford. Ehret's masterful and accurate drawings brought a new standard of excellence to botanical illustration, while Linnaeus's definitions of each species established the groundwork for his system of binomials.
