From the Publisher

The Naming of Names is a thrilling adventure into botanical history by the author of the worldwide bestseller The Tulip.

Imagine a world without definition: a world where plants exist but their properties are unknown because there is no way to classify them. Are they good to eat or poisonous? Can they be used to cure an illness or even save a life?

The search for order in the natural world is traced here for the first time, sumptuously illustrated in full colour. The book takes readers from Athens in the third century BC, to Constantinople, Venice, the Salerno medical school and the Pisa and Padua universities during the Renaissance. Filled with insight into a world of intrigue and competitive egos, this compelling journey involves the culture of Islam, the first expeditions to the Indies, the early settlers in North America and more.
