THE BASIS OF MODERN NATURAL CLASSIFICATION JUSSIEU, Antoine Laurent de.
Genera plantarum secundum ordines naturales disposita, juxta methodum in horto region parisiensi exaratam, anno M. DCC. LXXIV.
An extensively annotated copy of the first natural classification of flowering plants, derived by Antoine Laurent de Jussieu (1748–1836) from the unpublished work of his uncle, Bernard de Jussieu (1699–1777). Though de Jussieu’s associate Michel Adanson had introduced the concept of natural classification in 1763, it was de Jussieu who applied a Linnaean hierarchy of Divisions, Classes, and Orders, the union of the two proving enormously influential in future botanical developments: ‘this volume formed the basis of modern classification; more than this, it is certain that Cuvier derived much help in his zoological classification from its perusal’ (Britannica).
