8 editions published in 1831 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Employed early in his career by Sir Joseph Banks, the botanist John Lindley (1799–1865) is best known for his recommendation that Kew Gardens should become a national botanical institution, and for saving the Royal Horticultural Society from financial disaster. As an author, he is best remembered for his works on taxonomy and classification. A partisan of the 'natural' system of Jussieu rather than the Linnaean, Lindley writes, in his preface to this 1830 work, that it was originally created for his own use, to avoid having recourse to 'rare, costly and expensive publications' available only in the libraries of the wealthy. His intention is to give a 'systematic view of the organisation, natural affinities, and geographical distribution of the whole vegetable kingdom', as well as of the uses of plants 'in medicine, the arts, and rural or domestic economy'. The work is important in the history of taxonomy

Torrey was the center around which the botany of North America first became systematized. To him came most of the botanical materials gathered by all the great expeditions of his time, the military and geographical explorations and the railroad surveys that tapped the west from Canada to Mexico. He was the instructor, consultant, or associate of every prominent North American botanist of the day, and together with Asa Gray, once his pupil, he produced the Flora of North America, the first great systematic work on a continental scale in the New World
