First and only edition. The first botanical garden in Florence was established by Luca Ghine in 1545, and seems to have been no more than a herb garden. In 1718 the garden was revived and Pier' Antonio Micheli (1679-1713) became its first director until his death in 1737. The present work, was published posthumously by his successor Giovanni Targioni Tozzetti, who contributed a prefatory history of the garden to the work, which is a catalogue of plants, arranged alphabetically according to Tournefort's system. A fine uncut copy, with the bookplate of the New York Horticultural Society, bequest of Kenneth K. Mackenzie October 1934. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 5975; B.M.(Nat. Hist.)III, 1306.
