First Edition of this work on the classification of plants by the great English botanist John Ray (1628-1705). "Ray a été l'un des tout premiers à avoir une notion claire de l'espèce, notion basée sur la filiation des individus... Basant sa classification sur la structure des embryons et en particulier sur les cotylédons, il a le premier distingué les monocotylédons et les dicotylédons" (Dumas). 2). 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. Furthermore, in a most remarkable preface, the author admits the sex of plants, already discovered by Grew, and criticizes the method of Rivin. Small marginal worming and tear without loss at two leaves. Duplicate of the Paris Museum of natural history, with the cancellation stamp.
