Boccone Museum rariorum plantarum: nominibus linnaei specificis

Boccone Museum rariorum plantarum: nominibus linnaei specificis

This manuscript consists of two handwritten pages of introductory text in Latin, followed by hand-drawn copies of nearly every image from Paolo Boccone’s Museo di piante rare (1697), and sixteen additional illustrations that do not appear in Boccone's work. Cabrini annotates many of the drawings copied from Boccone's pre-Linnaean work with Linnaean taxonomy. The addition of this classification information, as well as the occasional addition of new details to the images, such as the flower or the calyx, required more space, so that the plants from one printed plate in Boccone's text can easily occupy several leaves in Cabrini’s manuscript. Although Boccone's text is omitted, his printed tables are hand-copied and appear at the end of Cabrini's manuscript. These two volumes are analyzed in greater detail in Illustration and Representation
