Murray's work is an attempt at Linnean classification of rare and unusual plants in the genera lysimachus, veronica, scabiosa, and celosia. Murray, a Swede, was one of Linnaeus' favorite students. He took his medical degree at the University of Gottingen and was appointed professor of medicine there and inspector of the university's botanical garden. He translated many of Linnaeus' works and his teaching powerfully influenced the succeeding generation of botanists. See: Blake, NLM, 317; BM (Nat. Hist.), III, p. 1382. This volume also contains contributions on botany, physics, mathematics and ancient inscriptions by: Johann Fr. Gmelin, Joh. Beckman, Heinrich August Wrisbert, Abr. G. Kaestner, Alb. L. Fr. Maister, C. G. Heyne, C. Gu Walch, Christoph Meiners, and more. Bookseller Inventory # S8067
