No jacket, but has protective polyester wrapper. This index accounts for over 30,700 occurrences of more than 13,000 different formal names of plant and animal taxa that appear in the original editions of the 186 dissertations defended by students of Carl Linnaeus (from Introduction). The work is also invaluable in helping to disentangle the various collected editions of these theses, those edited by Linnaeus himself being known as Amoenitates Academiae. Frontispiece shows the Jaquemot engraving of Linnaeus; three thesis illustrations are reproduced, of Splachnum, a serpent's skull, and a breeding pair of (un-named) Mercurialis perennis. v, 300 pp.
