Notes

General notes:
Part II of The Botanic Garden (The loves of the plants) was published first, in 1789, and part I (The economy of vegetation) in 1791. By that time, however, part II had appeared in a second edition (1790), and each subsequent edition can be considered as a composite of two editions, until the third/fourth edition of 1795/94. There followed another "fourth" edition in 1799, and an unnumbered posthumous edition in 1824. See Henrey 468-471, 612-614 for details.
