The Naming of Names', is about the men who searched for the rules of nature's game. What were plants to be called? What were there similarities and differences? How should they be grouped and ordered? The world was surely more than a random, chaotic jumble - if only a rationale could be found. Sumptuously illustrated in full colour,'The Naming of Names' gives a compelling insight into a world full of intrigue and intensely competitive egos. A good, clean and tight copy. View more info
