[France] Saint-Hilaire, translated by Liu Su, 2017, Beijing: Peking University Press .
This book is a Chinese translation of a collection of plant science paintings by naturalist Saint-Hilaire for Chinese readers. The translator wrote introductions for species in 45 families in the book. Compared with the several collections of paintings in this series published before, this book's text is a highlight. It not only lists each family's basic information: scale, distribution, major genera, flower and fruit features, but also introduces the meaning and origin of the name, history in humanities, social image, application value andrelations with human life. These descriptions have greatly enhanced the enjoyment and knowledge of the book.
