9781330629963: The Natural History of Vegetables, as Well Foreign as Indigenous, Vol. 6: Including an Account of Their Roots, Barks, Woods, Leaves, Flowers, Fruits, ... Virtues, and Uses in Medicine, Toget

Excerpt from The Natural History of Vegetables, as Well Foreign as Indigenous, Vol. 6: Including an Account of Their Roots, Barks, Woods, Leaves, Flowers, Fruits, Seeds, Resins, Gums, and Concreted Juices, as Also Their Properties, Virtues, and Uses in Medicine, Together With the Method of Cultivating Those Planted in Gardens

If we consider the different methods in which the knowledge of Botany has been treated of late, we shall find that none of the sciences so much require abridgment. The science of Vegetables may properly enough be divided into three parts, namely that of their arrangement in the Botanical Nomenclature, their culture and their properties. The last is the only one of real importance, the two former being subservient to it, and of no other benefit but as tending to make the latter more serviceable or more readily comprehended.

When the knowledge of Vegetables is once reduced into a science, it is requisite that their names and distribution should be the first thing delivered; but those who first attempted to learn the science from Nature herself, knew the plant and its properties before they assigned it a name. We have been nourished with the fruits, we have been clad with the leaves or barks, and have built huts of the wood of trees; before we became solicitous as to their appellations, chance rather than sagacity first taught us the use of plants, and their names followed their known utility. Hence it is obvious, that those immense labours which some late Botanists have undergone to give us a list of the names of Plants, can tend but little towards the discovery of their properties.

One would be led to suppose from the repeated endeavours to systematise this science, that the naming of plants was all they thought Students had to learn.
