Daily Book Graphics #29 / Botanical Nomenclature

I'm cheating a bit with this post since I previously posted this cover over a year ago. But I really wanted to include it in this project, so here it is. I bought this book at a discarded book sale at the Buffalo Museum of Science. It's certainly not worth reading, even if I did know something about botanical nomenclature it would be well out of date by now. I bought it because it is a really nice example of the Dutch (it was published in Utrecht) graphic design of the era. I couldn't find a design credit.
