"… born at Leyden, was a student of Bernard de Jussieu, at the Jardin du Roi, Paris, and from the agge of 25 was in charge of the royal gardens at Schönbrunn, near Vienna. Francis I sent him to the West Indies and Central America for new plants; and under Jacquin's care the Schönbrunn gardens came to be of vast scientific importance and world famous. This Enumeratio is his first listing of native plants in the region of Vienna; and he uses the new Linnaean binomials. …" (Hunt). The finely engraved plates are after the author's own drawings.

The Flora batava, a monumental work forming a beautifully illustrated survey of all indigenous plants in the Netherlands. It was started in 1800 by Jan Kops, a Dutch agronomist and professor of botany at Utrecht. The first 10 volumes constitute all that was prepared and issued under his supervision. When finished at last in 1934, Willem Jan Lütjeharms was the editor for volume 28, in which he concludes that this work has ended now and that publication took longer than any comparable foreign flora: De Flora Batava heeft langer geleefd dan een der met dit werk vergelijkbare buitenlandsche plaatwerken. The long publication period reflects the change in the technique of its illustrations. Initially copper-engravings were used, followed by lithographs, all coloured by hand, but from volume 25 colour-printing was gradually introduced. Also several artists were involved, but the plates are not signed, nor much information is given about them. Most plates in the first 3 volumes were illustrated by Georg Jacob Johann van Os. He was born in 1782 in The Hague and settled in Paris in 1826, where he worked for the Sèvres porcelain factory and was a painter of flower and fruit pieces, still lifes, etc. These early, finely engraved plates are exquisitely coloured by hand. Each plate is accompanied by a text in Dutch and French. The first publisher, J.C. Sepp en Zoon, was renowned for its scientific colour-plate books. The work was issued in 8vo and 4to. These plates is in the most desirable 4to format.

"The star performer among the swarm of Linnaean disciples was Pehr Loefling (1729-1756), a pupil to whom Linnaeus himself seems to have been genuinely attached. … In 1751 the Spanish government invited Loefling to come to Spain to study the flora and to organize botanical research. He remained there until 1753, made collections, and wrote many letters to Linnaeus. Early in 1754 he sailed for the Spanish territories in northern South America. His explorations are in part related in his Iter, but he was doomed to die all to early: he met his death on 22 February 1756 at the mission station of Murrecurri ('Merercuri' in the literature) in what is now Venezuela. The Iter hispanicum was published by Linnaeus in 1758; it contains the text of his letters to Linnaeus and his descriptions of Spanish and African plants." (Stafleu) From the preface by Linnaeus in this German edition: "Nun kam Herr Loefling gleichsam in ein neues Element und irdisches Paradies, wo das Land den rarsten botanischen Orangerien glich, und von den Gewächsen überfloß, welche kein Botanicus vor ihm irgend gesehen oder gesammlet hatte."
