A rare and important first edition botany handbook by Lebreton. This treaty deals with different vegetation and plants of the East Indies and South American, along with different species of trees and shrubs from North America and the American islands. It also includes descriptions of plants from Malabar, Ceylon, Persia, Siam, China, Cochinchina, Tahiti, and New Zealand.

 

Lebreton uses many of the Linnean nomenclature that was common for these plants. This was critical for the printing of this book as it was designed for amateur botanists and voyagers to give insight and knowledge of these plants.
