This very rare work was published in 1798. There are twenty-eight colored plates drawn and engraved by Nicolaas Meerburgh, who was a Dutch botanist and curator of the Leiden Botanical Garden from 1774-1814. These plates were described and reviewed (1799) in a German periodical as "crude etchings" compared to other natural history works of the time.
