On the fly-leaf an older note stating that the book belongs to the ''Bibliothèque du petit Pré (?)''. Most of the engravings received an additional latin caption written in a neat 19th (?) century italic hand, in black ink, and referring to the linnaean plant name. Nissen BBI, 517; Hunt 201. This is the most complete Latin edition of Dodoens' '' Cruydtboeck." . He was the first of the great 16th Flemish botanists and made with his herbals an important contribution to the botanical classification system which had begun with Bock's "Neu Kreuterbuch" in 1539. The 1616 Latin edition is his last and most comprehensive botanical work, incorporating material from his earlier publications, and containing also an attempt to explain the different parts of the plants. This is a fine crisp copy with no browning inside and without use, thumbing or wear at any pages, which is a rare condition for such a much used book. N° de réf. du libraire 31125
