About this Item

4to Recent quarter sprinkled-tan calf marble boards; green morocco label. Collation: [8], 29, [3]pp. Inked number 26 to title This is one of the most significant of all Linnaen theses, being the first arrangement of English plants in the Linnaen method and also "the first of thos compendious Florae in which the newly-invented trial names had been exemplified, and which have since been much used." (Pulteney, A General View of the Writings of Linnaeus. London, 1781, p. 270). Composed by Isaaac Olof Grufberg (1736-1764), one of the many students of Carl Linnaeus at Uppsala Univesity 1743-76 who presented and defended theses in order to expound the theories of their masters as well as advance their academic careers. These theses were printed locally with an eye to economy for distribution a week before the pupil s defence (in this case, 3 April 1754). After discussing the climate and situation of England and its plant-life, excelling in marine plants, Grufberg compares the English flora with that of Sweden, in which alpine, upland and wood plants thrive. This thesis contains a listing of nearly 1000 (phaneogram and cryptogram) plants that are ordered according to the 24 Classes of the Linnaean System, noting abpit 300 plants which were not found in Sweden. He concludes with a list of more than 100 plants that he was unable to investigate. This list is not indicated as a separate Addendum. (Soulsby 1299, 1805). Bookseller Inventory # 0000722
