One of the world's greatest naturalists, Carl Linnaeus, though a household word in the nineteenth century, is now undeservedly forgotten outside Sweden. He is presented anew in this beautifully illustrated biography, with its thirty-two pages of colour plates, including reproductions of exquisite eighteenth-century flower drawings and oil-paintings by such artists as Redoute, Ehret and van Huysum, and more than a hundred and fifty monochrome pictures.
