Book Title:Science and Civilisation in China: Botany
Author(s):Needham, Joseph
Publisher Name:Cambridge University Press
Place of Publication:Cambridge
Date of Publication:1986
Annotation:Needham states that the Chinese have a countless wealth of tractates and books without parallel in the world that document the genera and species which they have encountered on travels, conquests, or at home. He traces the development of Chinese botany from proto-scientific times in order to determine how far it progressed before its unification with modern science, a time of approximately two millenia. Includes woodcuts, illustrations, diagrams, and tables.
