First Edition illustrated by the portrait of the author, of this catalogue of European plants which gives a curious insight on the geographical botany in Europe (see Larousse) and to which Ray added a catalogue of rare Oriental plants.

About this Item: Stockholm, L. Salvius, 1753. 2 in 1 Bd. 6 Bll., 560 S., 1 Bl., S. 561 - 1200, 16 Bll. Erste Ausgabe dieses wissenschaftlichen Hauptwerks von Carl von Linne (auf dem 1905 in Wien tagenden II. Internationalen Botanischen Kongress wurde der Zeitpunkt der Veröffentlichung von Species Plantarum als Beginn der modernen Nomenklatur für Pflanzen festgelegt). - Soulsby 480a. Hulth 89. Heimann 107. Pritzel 5427. Stafleu-C. 4769. Sparrow 136. Hunt 548: "the most important single work in the world"s botanical literature". "In den Species Plantarum von 1753 werden siebentausenddreihundert Arten beschrieben, alle nach dem Sexualsystem geordnet und fast alle von Linné selbst untersucht" (Carter/M. 192). - "Species plantarum was the first work to account for all the kinds of plants then known for the world, to classify them according to a simple system by which anyone can determine their identity, and to provide for each kind a name of two words. This addition of a binominal system of nomenclature to the polynomial system has caused this work to be designated as the starting point for the modern nomenclature of ferns and flowering plants" (Introduction by W. T. Stearn. In: Carl Linnaeus Species plantarum. A facsimile of the first edition 1753). - Carl von Linné hatte die geniale Idee, ein botanisches Klassifizierungssystem basierend auf der Sexualität der Blütenpflanzen zu entwickeln. Er bildete nach Maßgabe von Zahl und Anordnung der Staubgefäße und Griffel 24 Pflanzenklassen. Den ersten Niederschlag fanden seine Überlegungen in der wissenschaftlichen Schrift `Präludia sponsaliorum plantarum`. Die Ausarbeitung dieser Gedanken endete 1753 mit der Veröffentlichung der "Species plantarum". Die Bedeutung dieser Arbeit kann gar nicht hoch genug eingeschätzt werden, denn Linné präsentierte darin erstmals die binäre Nomenklatur, womit er der modernen Biologie den Weg bereitete. Jede Pflanzenart, später generell jede biologische Art, wird seither mit zwei lateinischen Namen gekennzeichnet. - "The publication of Linnaeus`s Species Plantarum in 1753 is regarded as the starting point for the Latin binomial, or two-word, names of plants. Before his taxonomic system was adopted, there was confusion. For example, the Wild Briar Rose was identified by botanists as Rosa sylvestris alba cum rubore, folio glabro (roughly meaning pinkish white woodland rose with hairless leaves), and Rosa sylvestris inodora seu canina (odorless woodland dog rose). The Linnaean system reduced the confusion by tagging it simply - Rosa canina. Some 5,900 different plant species were labeled in Linnaeus`s Species Plantarum, a work which he himself called `the greatest in botany.` One of note was Linnaea borealis, the hardy twinflower which became a floral talisman for Linnaeus" (www.library.otago.ac.nz). - Durchgehend wasserrandig. Etw. gebräunt und stellenw. etw. fleckig. Zahlreiche Randnotizen eines Botanikers des 18. Jahrhunderts. *** /// *** Copyright: Matthaeus Truppe - Stubenberggasse 7 - A-8010 Graz - Tel. +43 316 829552 *** /// *** Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1300 8°. Mod.

Hortus Cliffortianus Plantus exhibens quas In Hortis: LINNAEUS, Carolus.

About this Item: Amsterdam: 1737, 1737. Folio (approx 445 x 260 mm). Contemporary sprinkled paper boards, neatly rebacked with black cloth, edges uncut. Board edges a little rubbed, some minor worm in the gutter towards end not affecting plates, one or two minor marks but a very good copy with uncut edges. Engraved frontispiece and 36 numbered engraved plates by Jan Wandelaar after designs by Georg Dionysius Ehret and Wandelaar; title printed in red and black. First edition of the most sumptuously produced of Linnaeus's works, a detailed description of the Hartecamp gardens at Heemstede, a masterpiece of early botanical literature. The illustrations are among the earliest works of the renowned German botanical illustrator, Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708-1770), who finished his career in England. It was produced at the expense of George Clifford (1685-1760), a wealthy Dutch banker and director of the Dutch East India Company, who asked Linnaeus to catalogue the plants in the gardens of his summer estate Hartecamp. Besides the plants, Linnaeus also describes Clifford's extensive botanical library, which contributed greatly to his research. The work is a helpful adjunct to Linnaeus's famous Species Plantarum (1753), in which he often refers to the more elaborate descriptions found in the Hortus Cliffortianus. Dunthorne 186; Hunt 504; Nissen BBI 1215 (coloured); Stafleu & Cowan 4719. Seller Inventory # 141326
