Prunus Avium (Wild Cherry). Part of a set of eight, this lithograph depicts the Prunus Avium, commonly known as Wild Cherry; with spring blossoms and the ripening fruit, beautifully-rendered and scientifically accurate; characteristic of late 19th-century botanical illustration. Circa 1890 [1. Binomial nomenclature, the formal system of naming species of living things, was developed by Carl Linnaeus in the mid-18th century. Each species is assigned a unique two-part name: the genus name, which is capitalized, and the species name, which is not. This system, introduced in Linnaeus' seminal work 'Species Plantarum' in 1753, brought a standardized and consistent method to the classification and naming of plants and animals, which is still the cornerstone of modern taxonomy. The nomenclature serves as a universal language among scientists and scholars, allowing for clear and precise communication regarding biological research. The enduring legacy of Linnaean taxonomy is evident in these exquisite botanical lithographs, where the artistry of the past converges with scientific discovery.
