Pinax Theatri Botanici General Survey

Pinax theatri botanici, sive Index in Theophrasti Dioscoridis, Plinii et Botanicorum qui a saeculo scripserunt opera

This work by Gaspard Bauhin (1560-1624) was published in 1623, and is also called "A Comparative Table of Plants" or "The Survey of Plants." It deals with over 6,000 species of plants and is considered to have brought Western herbalism to perfection. Its nomenclature had a large influence on John Ray (1628-1707), Tournefort, and on Linnaeus himself.
