Bibliographic Information
Cabrini, Aloysio.; Boccone, Paolo, 1633-1704. Museo di piante rare della Sicilia, Malta, Corsica, Italia, Piemonte, e Germania.

[2] leaves, cclxviiii leaves of plates, [13] leaves

This manuscript consists of 2 handwritten pages of introductory text in Latin, followed by hand-drawn copies of nearly every image from Paolo Boccone’s Museo di piante rare, and sixteen additional illustrations that do not appear in Boccone's work. Cabrini annotates many of the drawings copied from Boccone's pre-Linnean 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, necessitated 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 ommitted, his printed tables are hand-copied and appear at the end of Cabrini's manuscript.
