About this title:

Synopsis: A member, and later president, of the Académie des Sciences, French botanist and doctor René Louiche Desfontaines (1750-1833) spent the years 1783-5 on an expedition to North Africa. During his time in Tunisia and Algeria, he collected over a thousand plant specimens: more than three hundred genera were new to European naturalists at this time. Having succeeded Le Monnier in the chair of botany at the Jardin du Roi in 1786, Desfontaines helped found the Institut de France following the Revolution and published his two-volume Flora atlantica in Latin in 1798-9. A lavishly illustrated second edition appeared in four volumes in 1800. Combining its two volumes of plates into one, this reissue will give modern researchers an insight into the promulgation of pioneering plant science. Volume 3 brings together all 261 line engravings from the volumes that accompanied the botanical catalogue.

Book Description: French botanist René Louiche Desfontaines (1750-1833) spent two years collecting specimens in North Africa. First published in 1798-9, Flora atlantica is a Latin catalogue of these specimens. This lavishly illustrated second edition appeared in four volumes in 1800. This reissue combines the two volumes of plates into one.
