The idea of Linnaeus creating a dividing line in our understanding of the natural world makes me evoke the Enlightenment and its taxonomic anxiety. Or, a compleat herball Volume II is a facsimile of Fuchs's herbal, printed in black and white. Largely useless for identification purposes, different plants were often depicted by repeated use of the same woodcuts, while the descriptions of the properties of the herbs tended to mix genuine Discoridean tradition with local folk lore and the purely imaginary.

Many illustrations in color and black and white featured throughout.
