Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"It is the first thorough study of eighteenth century botanical illustrations. . The book is richly illustrated with well chosen pictures, facilitating the discussion. In all, this is a book that can be warmly recommended to all interested in the history of botany as well as in the pictorial world of Linnaeus' times." (Gunilla Törnvall, Svenska Linnesällscapets Arsskrift, 2008)
