First published in 1759; this is the second edition. Contains English translations of several academical disssertations done under Linnaeus’ supervision, a piece by Linnaeus, and an essay by Stillingfleet on grasses. Stillingfleet, 1702-1771, an author, naturalist and scholar, took up gardening to rest his inflamed eyes. This led him to study herbals, botany and similar subjects. He was probably introduced to the Linnaean system between 1750 and 1755.
