First edition. The most important publication on the history of botany published in the 19th century. Julius Sachs (1832-1897) was the founder of modern plant physiology. "In 'Geschichte der Botanik ...' he went far beyond a dry historical description, presenting with great skill the basis of his own scientific work. This masterful presentation records all the fundamental elements upon which Sachs built his many theories' (DSB XII, 60).
