Contains some of the earliest attempts at printing copper plates in color. The plates were "engraved by [Elisha] Kirkall in what is generally called 'mezzotint printed in colour.' The phrase is misleading. ... Kirkall achieved a half-hearted imitation of true mezzotint by rather clumsily roughening the toned parts of the plate with a roulette and leaving the rest of it untouched. The so-called 'colour-printing' was equally elementary: many of the figures are merely printed in a mossy green and touched with water-colour; in a few of the others, two or three different coloured inks have been used in a single printing." (Wilfrid Blunt, The art of botanical illustration (1950), p. 133.)

Engraved after Jacob van Huysum (pl. 1-22, 25-28, 33-35, 37); William Houstoun (23-24, 43); 'Massey M.D.' (29); W. Sartorius (31, 36); R. Sartorius (32); 'Sartorius' (38, 40); no artist (30, 39, 41, 42, 44-50; 39, 41 and 44 also without engraver's signature).

Published in five decades, the fifth and last to be published appearing in 1737.

Praefatio includes mezzotint headpiece and etched historiated initial 'S' printed in grey-green (p. [i]), unsigned.

Page before praefatio is engraved dedication to the Royal Society, unsigned.
