By: Brian Halliwell(Editor)
A reprinting, not in facsimile, of the plant lists from Lyte's translation of Dodoens Niewe Herbal, Gerard's Herball, Parkinson's Paradisus, Bobart's Catalogus Plantarum Horti Medici Oxoniensis, Hanmer's Garden Book, Rea's Flora seu de Florum Cultura, Gilbert's Florists Vade-Mecum, Sibbald's Scotia Illustrata, John Blackburne's Catalogue of Plants at Orford, the Hortus Uptonensis, John Galpine's Catalogue of Useful Plants, John Brunton's Catalogue of Plants, and Dillwyn's Hortus Collinsonianus. Each section is preceded by a slightly idiosyncratic text. In every case, the scientific name of the time is given, along with the common name, and with the current botanical name of today. It is this latter function which makes the work invaluable to garden historians and plant researchers, and it is supplemented by a comprehensive sixty page index of Latin and English names.
