Robert John Thornton
|Notes:||Another version of Robert John Thorntons̀ 'New illustration of the sexual system of Carolus von Linnaeus'.
Half-title, engraved, of vol. 1: 'The philosophy of botany', and the half-title of vol. 2: 'Book second. A botanical and philosophical enquiry respecting roots'.
Titlepage of vol. 2 reads: 'The genera of exotic and indigenous plants'.
The titlepages to both volumes are engraved as well as one of the two dedication leaves in vol. 1.
"The work was advertised in 1797, and seems to have been issued in parts at twenty-five shillings each between 1799 and 1807. In its best state it is a very splendid work, . but its bibliography is very difficult, hardly two copies being alike" (DNB).
