Description:

A Cultural History of Plants in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries covers the period from 1650 to 1800, a time of global exploration and the discovery of new species of plants and their potential uses. Trade routes were established which brought Europeans into direct contact with the plants and people of Asia, Oceania, Africa and the Americas. Foreign and exotic plants become objects of cultivation, collection, and display, whilst the applications of plants became central not only to naturalists, landowners, and gardeners but also to philosophers, artists, merchants, scientists, and rulers. As the Enlightenment took hold, the natural world became something to be grasped through reasoned understanding.

A Cultural History of Plants in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries is the fourth volume in the six-volume set, A Cultural History of Plants. The six-volume set of A Cultural History of Plants presents the first comprehensive history of the uses and meanings of plants from prehistory to today. The themes covered in each volume are plants as staple foods; plants as luxury foods; trade and exploration; plant technology and science; plants and medicine; plants in culture; plants as natural ornaments; the representation of plants.

Series editors: Annette Giesecke and David Mabberley. Also available: A Cultural History of Plants (six-volume set).
