This is one of the more important works of the copious Pierre Joseph Buc’hoz. It containts two hundred colored plates of varying merit, artistically and botanically; but, except for an occasional note at the foot of a plate, it contains no descriptions (Hunt). Some plates have their number been deleted in the press, due to their previous use in other works. Buchoz is also spelled as Buch’oz or Buc’hoz.
