Catalogi stirpium agri bononiensis prodromus gramina ac hujusmodi affinia complectens
Bologna: Constantin Pisarri, 1719. FIRST EDITION. Complete with half-title, title in red and black, and printer's device on colophon. With 3 engraved plates (1 folding). Contemporary vellum-backed boards; light marginal browning. An excellent copy from the library of Melvin Edward Jahn, with his book-label. First edition of this valuable descriptive catalogue of Graminiae, which contains wheat, maize, barley and rye, the plant family most economically useful to man. More than three hundred species have been noted by the author, many indigenous to the area around Bologna and others collected on his travels. Monti provides a botanical description and treats the medical properties of each plant. He also makes references to earlier studies, and includes a bibliography, commencing with Pliny's work of 1470. Monti (1682-1760) was a professor of botany and natural history at the University of Bologna; the genus Montia is named in his honor. He wrote a number of works on materia medica, and was quite active with the large botanical garden in Bologna.
