Críticas:

" The most esoteric of this season's books are the hefty, alluring volumes (eventually six in all) of a 17th-century naturalist's extraordinary masterwork, THE AMBONESE HERBAL (Yale University Press, $85 per volume) ... a botanical treasure trove of Indonesian plants. Reading it, one enters a mysterious world all its own."-Dominique Browning, The New York Times -- Dominique Browning The New York Times "The Ambonese Herbal," with its lovely plates and dense descriptions, is for the serious collector's library. Nonetheless, it's full of fascinating social and medicinal lore, a legacy of a vanished time."-Dominique Browning, The New York Times -- Dominique Browning The New York Times Winner of the 2012 Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries annual Literature Award in the technical category -- Literature Award in the technical category Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries

Reseña del editor:

Over the course of five decades, the seventeenth-century naturalist Georgius Everhardus Rumphius assiduously gathered information on the native plants of Ambon Island and its archipelago. By presenting descriptions of the plants and their multiple uses, he succeeded in creating a cultural and scientific treasury of incomparable value for today's botanists, anthropologists, ethnobotanists, science historians, medicinal chemists, and other scholars. This comprehensive reference, complete with over 800 original illustrations, describes in remarkable detail more than 2,000 plants, their habitats, and their economic and medicinal uses. Also recorded are native plant names in Malay, Latin, Dutch, and Ambonese-and often in Macassarese and Chinese as well. E. M. Beekman's introduction discusses the Herbal's significance for tropical botanical literature and surveys the Indonesian economic and medicinal uses of the plants Rumphius described. Beekman also provides invaluable annotations throughout the Herbal.
