A fine, unsophisticated copy of a rare edition. ---- Soulsby 284, 285; Garrison-Morton 1829; D.S.B. VIII, p.375, Stafleu and Cowan 4714, 4715, 4716. - FIRST EDITIONS. "The Genera plantarum . next to Systema naturae is his outstanding early work" (DSB). "Linnaeus' botanical classification, the starting-point of modern systematic botany" (Garrison-M. 1829). It describes all 935 plant genera then known. Ehret had produced an engraving illustrating the Linnean method of plant classification in 1736 which is found in a few copies of the Systema naturae. Linneaus was so pleased by the diagram that he had it re-engraved and it was issued with all but the earliest copies of the Genera plantarum. The three works bound together here were issued separately as well as together. This first edition is very rare at auction: only two copies are recorded for the past decades (Christie's 2006 and Sotheby's 2004). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
