Condition Report

Second illustrated edition greatly expanded. Are brought together the two most important works of the great Swiss botanist, who inaugurated a new system of classification of plant species. PMM: "Bauhin first established in scientific nomenclature. His' Pinax'describes six thousand species: it is the beginning of a modern 'natural' classification based on general morphology. Bauhin Realized the convenience of the binomial nomenclature, Which later Became a central feature of Linnaeus's system. He decisively differentiated generates and species, giving names to generate, but without descriptions, while distinguishing species by diagnostic phrases. Bauhin's book is still our most important source for the investigation of the botanical literature preceding him ... "Sachs:" A still higher value must be SET ON or the repute in Gaspard Bauhin the distinction between species and genus is fully and consciously any carried out; Has every plant with him in generic and specific name, and this binary nomenclature Which Linnaeus is usually you thought to have founded, is almost perfectly maintained by Bauhin, Especially in the 'Pinax' . The lot is offered with a valid export license.
