Title: Flora Cochinchinensis, sistens plantas in regno Cochinchina nascentes. Quirus accedunt aliae observatae in Sinensi imperio, Africa orientali, Indiaeque locis variis. Omnes dispositae secundum systema sexuale Linnaeanum
Description: 1793 (2nd ed.). 2 volumes (complete). xxiv, 882 p., contemporary full calf (much worn, volume two missing spine). Library stamps on volume one reads: ''Cochinchine, service de santé, pharmacien en chef'', and also it is written through the title: ''Bibliothèque de la Pharmacie''. Library stamps on volume two also but very faint. So apparently this copy went to Vietnam and returned to Europe. There are several old annotations in the text. Last third of the text of volume one with a waterstain, and volume two also with waterstain mostly marginal. Should be rebound, but otherwise a complete copy of the scarce second edition (''Denuo in Germania edita cum notis Caroli Ludovici Willdenow'').
