Ledermüller (1719-69), a polymath, displayed a discerning interest in the art and science of natural history and especially in the newer science of microscopy which made it possible to study the characteristics of a great variety of specimens. The fine engravings, made by Winterschmidt in the first two volumes and Wirsing in the third, from the author's drawings, depict the plants, their seeds, flowering stages, and microscopic cross-section views. Fine copy. Bound-in is the first part of Johann Christian Daniel Schreber's Beschreibung der Gräser nebst ihren Abbildungen nach der Natur (Leipzig: 1769) with twenty finely engraved handcolored plates of various grasses along with a fragment of the second part. ?
