Stockholm, Kiesewetter, 1751. 8vo (17.1 x 10.1). Single leaf, being the frontispiece.
The " Philosophia botanica" is often found without this frontispiece portrait. According to Larsson & Fahlstedt, p. 25 "The engraved portrait...was supplied to only a few copies". Margins quite narrow, some thumbing and remnants of glue on the verso, otherwise a good copy. Larsson & Fahlstedt, p. 25 ( Stockholms Auktionsverk, Lars Bergquists Linnésamling); Soulsby 437, 441 (books); 3124 (portrait).
