Hortus Kewensis
by William Aiton
"Hortus Kewensis is 1789 catalogue of all the plant species then in cultivation at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, which constituted the vast majority of plant species in cultivation in all of England. It included information on the country of origin, who introduced the plant into English cultivation, and when. It is therefore now one of the most important sources of information on history of horticulture in England."— Excerpted from Hortus Kewensis on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
