Carl von Linné
|Notes:||In this edition, the binomial system previously employed in Museum Tessianum (1753) was extended in its application to all the kingdoms of nature; the Artedian classification of fishes, adopted in the earlier editions, was superseded by the familiar Linnaean system, and the cetaceans were for the first time eliminated from the class of fishes and grouped with the viviparous quadrupeds under the new class name Mammalia.
In the Ratio Editionis (p. [1-2]) Linnaeus gives a list of the ten editions of the Systema naturae, with notes, also of his collections and patrons, with a list of his expeditions and of those of 11 of his pupils.
Tom. 1. Animalis pp , 6-823,
