Comments: In the 17th century finding and classifying new species became a worldwide obsession shared by scientists, clergymen, industrialists, school children, and adventurers of all stripes. In the absence of practical photography, botanists relied on increasingly arcane botanical Latin and increasingly exquisite botanical art, as showcased in this volume. This large book consists of rare or unpublished drawings from the Kew Royal Botanic Gardens. It is not a field guide, it is a book of exquisite art. 256 pages.
