Descrizione del libro

Ge.veral. 5: Fwe confider the difrerent method? in ir hvvliich the knowledge of Botany has been ti V-i treated of late, we fhall find that none of the fcieftces fo much require abridg ment. The fcienceof Vegetables may properly enough be divided into three parts, namely that of their arrangement ia the Botanical Nomenclature, their culture and their properties. The lad is the only one of real importance, the two former being fubfervient to it, and of no other benefit but as tending to make the latter more ferviceable or more readily comprehended. When the knovedge of Vegetables is once reduced into a fcicnce, it is rquifite that their names and diftJ-ibution fnould be the firfc thing delivered; but thofe who fir Hattempted to learn the fcience from Nature berfelf, knew the plant and its properties before they afiigned it a name. We have been nourifhed with the fruits, we have been clad with the leaves or barks, and have built huts of the wood of trees ;before we became folicitous as to their appellations, chance rather than fagacity firfl taught us the ufe of plants, and their namps followed their known utility. Hence it is obvious, that thofe immenfe labours which fomc late Botanifts have undergone to give us a lift of irtie names of Plants, can tend but little towards the difcovcry of their properties. One would be led to fuppofe from the repeated endeavours to fyftem itife this fcience, that the naming of plants was all they thought Students had to learn.
