OCLC: 14931781 This extensive catalogue of the plants in the Montpellier Botanical Garden is the first application of Linnean classification in France. Antoine Gouan (1733 – 1821) was a French naturalist from Montpellier and an early expositor of Linnaean taxonomy in France. In 1752, Gouan received his doctorate under Antoine Magnol and practiced medicine at Saint-Éloi Hospital in Montpellier while continuing to pursue his interest in natural history. In 1762 Gouan published this plant catalog of the botanical garden at Montpellier titled Hortus regius monspeliensis. This publication was the first French botanical work that followed the binomial nomenclature of Linnaeus. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
