Quote from H.W. Lack 'Linnaeus and Richter': 'Richter's aim is clearlyevident from the rather baroque title of his work which is given here in an English translation of the 1840 variant -'C. Linnaeus's Systema, Generaand Species Plantarum in a single volume. Critical, contracted andsummarized edition or Codex Botanicus Linnaeanus, the complete Linneantext taken from all editions of the Systema, Genera et SpeciesPlantarum, the Mantissas, the Additamenta and a selected digest of hisother botanical works, collated and condensed. Showing the completediscrepancy of editions. Edited for practical use of botanists with abrief note explained by Hermann Eberhard Richter, M. D., Professorat the Medico-Surgical Academy in Dresden, ordinary member of severallearned societies" . -Very appropriately this work was describedrecently as an "important source of dates of Linnaean works, but alsoan extremely convenient compilation of Linnaeus's main botanicalworks, enabling the user to compare at a glance the entries for thesame taxon in the various works" (Stafleu & Cowan 1983). It was amammoth task undertaken with remarkable determination and speedresulting in a condensed edition of Linnaeus's botanical works - on1102 folio pages printed in rather small script.'
