The Natuurlyke historie is a Dutch version of Linnaeus Systema naturae, edition 12, 1767, enlarged, amended and with plates. It is divided in three sections: I. Zoology in 18 volumes with 143 plates (mammals, volume 1-3; birds, volume 4-5; amphibians, volume 6; fishes, volume 7-8; insects, volume 9-13; worms, snails, etc., volume 14; molluscs, volume 15-16; polypes, volume 17-18), II. Botany in 14 volumes with 105 plates (palms, volume 19; trees, volume 20-21; shrubs, volume 22-24; herbs, volume 25-29; bulbs and tuberous plants, volume 30; grasses, volume 31; cryptogams, volume 32), and III. Mineralogy in 5 volumes with 48 plates (fossils, stones and minerals, volume 33-37). … An excellent example of this trend towards writing on science in the vernacular with a wide public in mind is provided by Maarten Houttuyn (1720-1798) and his elaborate Dutch 'version' of the twelfth edition of Linnaeus's Systema naturae, actually a wholly independent work, entitled Natuurlijke Historie ... Houttuyn was a Dutch physician at Amsterdam with evidently as much leisure as enthusiasm for natural history. … The taxonomic part of the book is extremely detailed and contains a wealth of incidental information not brought together in this form elsewhere. The total botanical work contains some 8600 pages of text, 105 excellent copper plates illustrating 275 species of plants and the description of well over a hundred new species of plants. … (Frans A. Stafleu: Linnaeus and the Linnaeans pp. 174-176).

Greatly expanded and rewritten by Johannsen in German, it became in 1909 the first and most influential textbook of genetics on the European continent. About half of the book was devoted to the mathematical and statistical methods needed in the analysis of the quantitative data arising from experiments in genetics. This was what exakten in the title meant, not pretensions on the part of a new biology but, rather, delimitation of that part of a heterogeneous field which could be dealt with by quantitative methods to verifiable facts. In this book Johannsen defined the basic concepts of a new science - gene, genotype, phenotype - and forecast the effects to be expected from it upon the central problem of biology, that of the mechanism of organic evolution. The Elemente appeared in revised editions, the third (and last) in 1926. Many European biologists owed to it their introduction to genetics (DSB).

This is Josselyn’s first book on his two voyages to America in 1638 and 1663; the second, an elaboration on the first, was called An account of two voyages, London, 1674 ... Both books are justifiably famous for their record of New England life and customs in the 17th century, and particularly interesting to people who are fond of Maine, because of Josselyn’s keen observation of the country-side around Black Point and Scarborough, where he visited his brother Henry. His comments on every phase of the natural history around him, as well as the medical uses made of the plants, are cheerful and accurate, and showed wide learning for his day. Dr. Paul Sears, noted conservationist of Yale University, who wrote his thesis on the Dandelion, says that Josselyn’s is the first reference to that flower in America. ... (Hunt).
