The present work contains observations on Georgia, Persia, Java, and Japan, Japanese paper-making, details on natural history, the use of amber, tobacco, opium, cannabis, medical subjects, including acupuncture, a long chapter on the Persian date palm, and a catalogue of Japanese plants with their native names. "Aan extremely important work botanically because of Fasciculum V which describes and illustrates the plants of the Orient. Here is pictured for the first time for Western eyes such flowers as the Camelia under its Japanese name 'Tsubaki'". (Hunt). In addition to the botanical observations (which fascinated and were frequently referred to in the fiction of Luis Borges), the work is notable for the illustrations and ebgravings, which include many fine views (of Isfahan, Persepolis), a sea-chart of the Persian Gulf, antiquities, manners and customs, musical instruments, acupuncture needle placement, many of them by F.W.
