Additional engraved title-page reads 'Stirpivm Sciagraphia Et Icones Ex Mvsæo Dominici Chabræi ...'. Dominique Chabrée was a Swiss physician and botanist at Geneva, Montbéliard and Yverdon. He edited and published Bauhin and Chercler's Historia plantarum universalis, 1650--51. In the present work the woodcuts of the Historia plantarum have been incorporated in his own text, of which the first edition was published in 1666 as Stirpium icones et sciagraphia. The present edition was made up from sheets of the 1666 edition with new title-page, dedication and preface; another issue also dated 1677 has imprint: Coloniae Allobrogum, sumptibus Samuelis de Tournes. Title-page printed in red and black, with printer's device.
