The first comprehensive introduction to all 186 Linnaean dissertations, in the form of short essays (many illustrated) on each dissertation. Most of these dissertations, which were published in Latin, have remained relatively obscure until now. The essays describe the content of each dissertation, and place each dissertation its historical context. Topics of the dissertations include botany, zoology, pharmacology, and medicine.
