About this work
This book is a French edition of a German work on microscopy. The title translates from French as ‘New Discoveries in the Vegetable Kingdom from Microscopical Observations.’ Written by Wilhelm Friedrich, Freiherr von Gleichen-Russwurm (1717-83), it reflects the growing interest in microscopy as a tool of investigation and a means of categorising the natural world. The book contains water colour plates showing different microscopes and their accessories. author: Gleichen-Russwurm, Wilhelm Friedrich, Freiherr von, printer: Chretien de Launoy, illustrator: Keller, Jean Christophe Place made: France
