"First edition of the sequel to Clusius' Rariorum plantarum historia (1601), containing further works not published in the former and mostly devoted to exotic plants and animals. The first six books contain new writings by Clusius, devoted to new species of plants, animals, and natural history from the new World, Southeast Asia, Africa, etc. This work is important for the number of new descriptions of non-European plants (and some animals) it contains, among which is the first published record and illustration of a South African plant. There is an extensive account of exotic seeds sent to him by various explorers. Books VII-X comprise Clusius, translations, with commentary, of da Orta, Acosta, Monardes and Belon."--University of Leiden Library
